Uvaggio Vermentino Lodi 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points and 'Best Buy,' Wine Enthusiast: Anyone intrigued by the array of alternative whites being produced in California right now should know about this wine, an incredibly priced, low-alcohol sipper that's also complex enough to pair with a range of lighter foods. Its aromas of apricot and sweet peach are most inviting, and the wine also has a saltiness layered around its acidity that hits in the midpalate and then finishes dry. A complex, medium-bodied, layered white that tastes of the sea. 2,016 cases produced. Alcohol 12%. (Feb 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

Rather lightly aromatic with nice notes of lemon, a touch of peach and then big chalky and mint top notes. Bright on entry, this is rather small-scaled in the mouth but shows nice depth of flavor. Fruit-driven in the Vermentino way, which is to say not terribly, and showing as much mineral and suggestions of fines herbs over pineapple and green melon fruit. Rather refined and finishing with excellent length and a hint of white flowers and camphor in the mouth. Classy. 88 points

I got this my first time at WineSteals, a local wine store. There were little bubbles at bottom of glass when i poured this. Mineral nose with a floral note. Medium bodied, this had a refreshing bite of acid and a bitter soapy note. Lightly spiced, this had good notes of apple and residual sugar. The finish lingers like i just finished a green apple. http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2012/08/vermentino.html
