Poggio al Tesoro Solosole 2017
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Bolgheri|
|Brand||Poggio al Tesoro|
Yellow-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.
Poggio al Tesoro's 2017 Vermentino Solosole is one of the better whites I tasted from the Tuscan coast. Notwithstanding the hot growing season, the Solosole preserves terrific freshness and energy in the more contemporary style this wine is being made in today. I would prefer to drink the 2017 sooner rather than later. Aside from being delicious, it is a screaming value.
Fresh and vibrant, this white offers apple, almond, white pepper and sage aromas and flavors. Balanced and tangy on the finish.
