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
