Uvaggio Vermentino 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points and 'Best Buy,' Wine Enthusiast: Made from a hard-to-find variety in California, this bright, beautifully aromatic wine expresses gorgeous scents of jasmine that follow through in flavor to the finish. Its layers of lime, apple and a generous level of minerality are perfectly executed and waiting for seafood. Alcohol 12.5%. (Dec 2012)

L'Uvaggio di Giacomo:
Uvaggio is the result of two guys who represent a triple threat: too much experience, a low threshold for boredom and a desire to do something unique, which is why we make wines in California with grape varieties indigenous to Italy.  In the past we have made Arneis, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, even a Vin Santo.  Our current portfolio includes Barbera, Moscato, Primitivo and Vermentino. &...

Uvaggio is the result of two guys who represent a triple threat: too much experience, a low threshold for boredom and a desire to do something unique, which is why we make wines in California with grape varieties indigenous to Italy.  In the past we have made Arneis, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, even a Vin Santo.  Our current portfolio includes Barbera, Moscato, Primitivo and Vermentino.  Our theory is simple: if California has a climate perfect for growing Mediterranean varietals, why not take advantage of it? Based on our theory - if we grow the right grape in the right place, we can manage to get by with our respective degrees in psychology and geography.  (If one of us gets lost then other can figure out why.)  However, when you grow grapes in the wrong place, you probably need a Master's Degree from UC Davis to make the wine taste good (if you are lucky).  We think we have found the right places in Lodi for growing our grapes and urge you to discover this for yourself and try our wines. Simply put - we are passionate about wine and we craft ours for people who want to experience something different than your typical California product.  While our experience is well steeped in California's traditions, our product is contemporary. We produce these wines somewhat anonymously, relatively inexpensively and eschew the corporate, cookie cutter approach. Our wines are for people who appreciate expressive flavors delivered with a classic style.  You will not read anything about “the right wine is the wine you like” or “find the wine you like and stick with it.”  You will not find wines from Uvaggio with 16% alcohol and residual sugar (unless, of course, it is intentional) in our portfolio. Our whites are fresh, crisp, dry and rarely exceed 12.5% alcohol.  Our barrel-aged reds are rarely over 14.5% alcohol. Read less

Rare to see this variety coming out of California but a good representation. Aromatic from the start with a wonderful floral nose that is very inviting. Light bodied with a palate of jasmine with very floral characteristics to the finish. Hints of lime, green apple, and a delightful minerality that makes this quite refreshing. Wonderfully paired with seafood dishes.

The nose was fresh yet rich with seaside air, citrus, green olive and herbal tones. On the palate, ripe green apple with a citrus twinge kept it fresh and lively against medium-weight, almost oily textures. The finish was crisp with brisk acidity and lime lingering on the palate. (88 points)

Green herbal notes on the nose. Pretty, floral fresh aromas with some salinity and minerality. Brisk acid on the palate and mineral driven. Lots of fresh produce and green herbs. Some hints of salinity. Definitely a food friendly wine. Stony pear and quince flavors. 87 pts. 5/1/13

Light yellow color and for the bouquet I pick up some peach and apple. On the palate this wine is acidic and crisp coupled with tart apple and a hint of lemon with a slight peppery note. The finish was short but pleasant. Enjoyable
