Vermentino Solosole Toscana IGT 2009

Named Solosole ("only sun" in Italian) because only the sun is allowed to influence the grapes’ aromas.  There is no blending with other varieties, nor wood aging to interfere with the flavors of this grape. The goal in making this wine is to purely express the aromas and flavors that are so unique to Bolgheri.

Tasting Notes

Solosole offers delicate aromas of acacia flowers, apricots and banana. The vibrant acidity frames the fruity flavors and lingers pleasantly on the finish.

Food Pairing

This is the wine of choice for seafood antipasti, pasta with shellfish, ceviche, flavorful fish dishes or vegetable quiches.
