Vermentino is the classy and intelligent persons' Pinot Grigio - hence why we at Cellar Door much prefer Vermentino to Pinot Grigio.....
Straw yellow in colour. Fresh in flavor, this wine is fruity with superb minerality which adds length. Elegant and intense in aroma.
The winemaker from Baron Rothschild-Lafite, Christian Le Somme, visits once a month and, by working closely with Alessandro Cellai (from Castellare di Castellina) they are able to maintain the essential Italian character of Tuscany, through the plantings of Sangiovese combined with the power and mid-palate weight of Cabernet and Merlot.
