Poggio al Tesoro Solosole 2017
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Bolgheri|
|Brand||Poggio al Tesoro|
This is very linear and energetic with lots of fresh fruit. Lemon and lime-rind undertones. Bright acidity. Medium body. Delicious finish. Plenty of fruit and freshness.
To make the 2017 Bolgheri Vermentino Solosole, Poggio al Tesoro sourced Vermentino clones from Corsica, rather than Tuscany. The clone has large, loose clusters that require a lot of extra work in order to manage yields; the vineyard teams do a lot of fruit selection, sometimes berry for berry. This wine is made in stainless steel. They had experimented with oak but that was abandoned. It is fermented at very low temperatures and aged on the lees. The first vintage of this popular white wine was 2006.
Yellow-peach, tropical-fruit and Mediterranean brush aromas follow through to the fresh, rounded palate along with a vein of saline and white grapefruit. It's juicy and savory, with a bitter-almond finish.
Poggio al Tesoro's 2017 Vermentino Solosole is one of the better whites I tasted from the Tuscan coast. Notwithstanding the hot growing season, the Solosole preserves terrific freshness and energy in the more contemporary style this wine is being made in today. I would prefer to drink the 2017 sooner rather than later. Aside from being delicious, it is a screaming value.
Delightful aromas of rosemary and thyme, with persistent lemon and lime flavours on a creamy, weighty palate. Well put together.
Fresh and vibrant, this white offers apple, almond, white pepper and sage aromas and flavors. Balanced and tangy on the finish.
All sizes are 750ml unless otherwise stated.
