Poggio al Tesoro Solosole 2015

The great virtue of this Vermentino is that it enhances the aromas and flavours peculiar to Bolgheri. Its clean, crisp flavour and purity are its distinguishing features. The grapes are harvested when their colour changes to an intense yellow. The name Solosole, meaning 'just sunshine', derives from the fact that the wine is essentialy a direct result of the work undertaken in the vineyards and the ripening sun. Bright straw yellow in colour, with a substantial consistency. Solosole is characterised by a vibrant freshness, which is delicate and balanced. The palate is intense, persistent and refined. The aromas are both floral (white flowers and acacia) and fruity (yellow and tropical, including apricot and banana), typical of this variety. An ideal wine to accompany all aperitifs, raw fish, and - due to its tanginess and fragrance - fried and poached fish. Its crispness also makes it suitable with vegetarian cuisine. Total acidity: 5.62 g/L Residual sugars: 3.00 g/L

Poggio al Tesoro owes a great deal to the far-sightedness of Walter Allegrini, the wine-maker from Valpolicella who loved Bolgheri and was Allegrini’s enthusiastic forerunner in Tuscany.
