Get to know one great white grape, 6 ways!! - and enjoy great pricing thanking you for your inquiring investment. 

Two come from Tuscany, Italy:  Guado al Tasso and Cristoforo, both "Super Tuscan" producers.  The former shows a touch more ripe, youthful fruit and broad, melon-y lushness.  Cristoforo "wises up" with a little more food-loving savories.  Each displays the body for which Tuscan Vermentino is known.  Understand, though, that no wine in this sampler touched a barrel!

Two others hail from Sardegna, Italy:  Santadi 'Villa Solais' is snappy with briny-licious nerve.  Argiolas 'IS' is a suave and sexy remark of sensuous texture.  Sardegna is 200 miles from Italy's mainland, a distance providing a fun style variation! 

Another, named by Vermentino's synonym "Rolle," is from Provence, France.  Here, Rolle is more often a bit player in the local dry rosé.  This is a rare all-Rolle bottling; juicy stuffe:  Domaine Gavoty!

Yet another synonym, "Favorita," comes to us from Piemonte, Italy.  Thought-provoking via its 4-hour soak on the grape skins, adding a little tannic intrigue.  Like all wines from this region, it loves food.  I'm thinking delicate cream sauces atop . . . anything!

Enjoy the ride!  - Jim
