Aia Vecchia Vermentino 2016

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Pretty fragrant on the nose with perfumy floral notes layered over some minty, sandy tones, a touch of fennel pollen and soft heathery citrus fruits. A bit soft, or rather broad in the mouth, this lacks a bit of brightness on the palate but does deliver lovely roasted lemon flavors with hints of sand and herbal floral top notes. The acids pops a bit on the backend and helps to add some drive to the fairly rich but short citrus, peach nectar, and herb finish. Not herbal like Sauvignon Blanc but more in the chamomile and dried thyme vein. Would be nice with a dimple fish preparation. 86pts

Aia Vecchia is the name of an old building which is today the centre of a company deep in the Tuscany countryside between Bolgheri and Castagneto Carducci. This is an area where the particularly favourable microclimate and ideally suited soils make possible the production of very high quality wines. The particular position gives the vines very much light, both direct sunlight as sunlight reflected by the sea. This in general allows an early harvest. The property consists of 69 hectars of open ground: 48 are vineyards, 30 of which are under the Bolgheri DOC. The planted varieties are Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, which are used to produce Lagone and Sor Ugo. In the cellar situated in Castagneto Carducci there are 2000 barriques. The Morellino di Scansano is produced in the estate of Magliano in Toscana (Grosseto) which consists of 10 hectares planted with Sangiovese and Merlot grape varieties. Read less
