Food Pairings for Vermentino Occhio a Vento Maremma Toscana I G T Italie
Simply fascinating. Almost no stereotypical Italian traits. In a blind tasting I would guess a Barbera from California. Big fruit bomb without the oak-y cream or vanilla. Like pure fruit. Sour fruity acidity to the core. Like melted warheads candy. I have never had anything like this before. This is a must try. not much aging potential due to lack of tannin so drink up. Like Barberas, this goes terrific with pizza.
This is a slightly above average wine, not a great one but nice. Light and fruity, it was very easy to drink. It went well with Rosemary marinated grilled beef and roasted potatoes. Worth trying at an Italian ristorante
Quite heavy but nice
Really nice with any Italian food.
I purchased three bottles of this wine... the first I had without food and it held up well as a nice entertaining bottle consumed with friends... But this wine is really better served with food, especially any risotto dish with mushrooms. Any scallopini of chicken or veal with this vintage is the oyster's ice skates and an extremely enjoyable pairing. Salute!
External Reviews for Vermentino Occhio a Vento Maremma Toscana I G T Italie
Chianti Classico Riserva Fizzano 2007 - 91 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Riserva di Fizzano is always an impressive wine, and the 2007 vintage has produced an especially generous, soft and rich bottling. It delivers aromas of bright cherry, soft spice, chocolate, pipe tobacco and a pretty flower accent at the back. It would pair with pork roasted with fennel seed and garlic.
Chianti Classico Riserva Fizzano 2004 - 90 Points, Wine Enthusiast/ This is an opulent, fruit-forward Riserva with plush notes of berry, spice and vanilla…The wine has a full, rich feel with smooth structure…
Chianti Classico Riserva Fizzano 2009 - 91 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Made in a very respectable Chianti Classico style, the wine delivers freshness, with tart berry notes and a bright, streamlined feel. Medallions of veal, grilled sausage or roast chicken would all pair nicely with this Sangiovese-based wine (with small percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot).
Riserva di Fizzano 2006 - 91 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Plush, fruit-forward and soft, Riserva di Fizzano shows a modern, confident style. The wine’s appearance already shows darker hues of aging and the bouquet is characterized by dark fruit, leather and spice.
Chianti Classico Riserva Fizzano 2008 - 90 points, Wine Enthusiast/ With its inky concentration, rich extraction and ripe aromas of blackberry pie and cherry preserves, fine craftsmanship is evident. Soft veins of spice and chocolate weave elegantly throughout.
A wonderfully unique Vermentino from the coast of Tuscany. This wine is a perfect match for seafood prepared in many styles. The long finish is highlighted by a pleasant, slightly salty, sea breeze element.
A nose of white flowers with herb and sea salt notes awaken the senses. Very fresh on the palate with citrus hints and almond notes.
