Poggio Al Tesoro

poggio al tesoro solosole vermentino 2021 750ml

$22.99 SPECIAL $21.95

The great virtue of this Vermentino is that it enhances the aromas and flavours peculiar to Bolgheri. Its clean, crisp flavour and purity are its distinguishing features. The grapes are harvested when their colour changes to an intense yellow. The name Solosole, meaning 'just sunshine', derives from the fact that the wine is essentialy a direct result of the work undertaken in the vineyards and the ripening sun.

 

Tasting Notes

Golden yellow in colour with greenish hues, Solosole opens with notes of stone fruits such as peach and apricot, followed by sulphurous and flint-like notes. It has a medium body, with generous fruit character. The finish is long, dry and zesty, especially when young. It evolves interestingly in the glass, an indication of its excellent ageing capacity.

 

Food Pairings

Appetizers, raw fish and, thanks to its freshness and aromatic character, fried seafood, fish stews and vegetable dishes. Serve at 8-10°C and open just before serving.

Critical Acclaim

JS92, James Suckling

"Apricots, grapefruits, crushed stones and juniper berries. It’s creamy and medium- to full-bodied with juicy stone fruit and citrus. Lovely dry mineral notes to close. Drink now."

 

RP91, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The folks at Poggio al Tesoro really have nabbed a successful approach when it comes to the versatile Vermentino grape. The 2021 Bolgheri Vermentino Solosole opens to a luminous appearance and golden highlights. The bouquet produces nectarine, passion fruit, pomelo and a glossy or waxy element that adds a bit of the proverbial shine. It only sees stainless steel, and the grapes come from a vineyard planted just above the level of the sea. An ample 100,000 bottles were made and each one offers terrific value."
