2016 Belguardo Vermentino

$22.00

The Belguardo estate, tucked among the Grosseto and Montiano hills, about six miles inland from Italy’s west coast, is home to their estate grown Vermentino. Influenced by the sea, the Vermentino grapes develop into balanced fruit. The Vermentino grapes are hand harvested and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The result is a vibrant Vermentino wine that emits stone-fruit and mineral notes, which intertwine with pleasant notes of peach, jasmine and wet stone notes on the palate.


ABV % = 13
