2018 Rocca delle Macìe Occhio al Vento Vermentino

Vermentino grapes come exclusively from Rocca delle Macie’s 15-hectare Casamaria estate in Tuscany’s coastal Maremma area. Rocca delle Macìe Vermentino di Toscana, “Occhio a Vento” (eye of the wind) is a local reference to the warm, dry Mediterranean sea breezes that influence the Casamaria estate. Flavors of ripe peach and lemon sorbet are accented by intriguing notes of wild herbs, concluding in a lingering finish.
