Delightful throwback to days in Portofino, this hard-to-find vermentino sings with sea spray, grapefruit, lemon peel, chamomile, nectarine, white peach, and tingly acid - mineral streak that accentuates both seafood and citrus fruit salads. Another superb expression from Liguria — 5 years ago

This is a wine of intense subtlety. Deep golden color and tight, but medium acidity. The notes are complex and many, but they are not obvious. Starts with strong saline and brine. Then moves to mineral and stone, with underlying green apple, slight zest, and some minimal tropical notes. It packs a punch and requires a long time on the palate to fully open up and appreciate.
