Tenuta Aquilaia Vermentino 2020

Italy / Tuscany

Andy's Tasting Notes

Seriously good value for a top class Vermentino with concentration, purity and quintessential Italian poise.  Lovely hints of lime, candied lemon and ripe apple.  Dry, crisp yet elegantly layered and nuanced.  (closure – cork)

Producer Info

The 40 hectare Tenuta Aquilaia estate was recently acquired by Azienda Uggiano. Situated in Maremma (southern Tuscany) close to Scansano, in the province of Grosseto. With an average age of ten years, the vineyards produce five red grape varieties: Sangiovese, Ciliegiolo, Alicante, Merlot and Petit Verdot; plus white varieties Vermentino and Chardonnay. The area was an old Etruscan settlement and site of ancient winemaking, and several mementos of the Etruscan era are still visible.
