Italy, Toscana IGT, Tuscany, Vermentino, White Wine

Pleasant white that’s perfect for sipping on a hot day. 100% Vermentino, 13% alc, 4 months fermented in 100% steel. Citrus, apple peel, peach and honey. Came out of the bottle with a little spritziness and needed a few minutes of air before showing its best. Simple, yet good. $15 at our local Costco in Austin. At that price, I can definitely recommend it.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
