With investment pouring into Tuscany's coastal wine regions these days, Vermentino is definitely a white wine to watch. This grape thrives in the maritime climate, being hardy enough to withstand the heat and ripening late. It has a refreshing sea breeze quality to it, whilst carrying scents of wild fennel, pine, white flowers and finishing with a mineral, salty kick. People don't immediately think of the Mediterranean when they think of Tuscany but Vermentino could be the most characteristic Tuscan white of them all. This bottling which comes out of the small, boutique vineyard plantings of Giardini Ripadiversilia, is brimming with peach and apricot fruit and has enough muscle to stand up to the strongly flavoured fish soups and shellfish found all along Tuscany’s coastline. Serve between 8-10 degrees.
