The radiance of the Vermentino varietal reflects intensely in the aromas of Solosole, a white wine that captivates with its intense hints of flowers and unexpected yellow fruit. The palate has a medium body, is succulent and highly enjoyable. The development of the wine in the glass suggests that it has the potential to evolve for a few years. Food Pairing: Solosole is an ideal wine to accompany aperitifs, raw fish and, thanks to its tanginess and fragrance, fried and poached fish. Its crispness also makes it suitable with vegetarian cuisine. Serve at a temperature of 8/10°C (56/50°F) uncorking the bottle shortly before consumption.

Wine AdvocateTo 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.

James SucklingThis 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.

DecanterDelightful aromas of rosemary and thyme, with persistent lemon and lime flavours on a creamy, weighty palate. Well put together.

Wine EnthusiastYellow-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.

Wine SpectatorFresh and vibrant, this white offers apple, almond, white pepper and sage aromas and flavors. Balanced and tangy on the finish.
