Col d'Orcia Vermentino Toscana 2020
Col d’Orcia means the hill overlooking the Orcia River. The Orcia River marks the South West border of the Brunello di Montalcino territory and the name of the farm is intrinsically linked to the physical location were the vineyards are planted. It is the mission of Col d’Orcia to produce the best possible wines that the exceptional combination of soil and climate of this part of Montalcino can achieve. Since 2010 the whole estate is run following exclusively organic agricultural practices.
Straw yellow with greenish hues. Intense, complex and elegant with aromas of citrus fruits like pink grapefruit together with hints of tropical fruits. Smooth, fresh and savoury, the aftertaste is persistent and pleasantly citrusy and fruity.
Think fresh herb sauces, like pesto; light, breezy rustic soft cheeses; and fruits de mer. Though it showcases light, citrusy flavors, a glass of Vermentino can be overwhelmed by overly acidic dishes.
