Apricots, grapefruits, crushed stones and juniper berries. It’s creamy and medium- to full-bodied with juicy stone fruit and citrus. Lovely dry mineral notes to close. Drink now.

The folks at Poggio al Tesoro really have nabbed a successful approach when it comes to the versatile Vermentino grape. The 2021 Bolgheri Vermentino Solosole opens to a luminous appearance and golden highlights. The bouquet produces nectarine, passion fruit, pomelo and a glossy or waxy element that adds a bit of the proverbial shine. It only sees stainless steel, and the grapes come from a vineyard planted just above the level of the sea. An ample 100,000 bottles were made and each one offers terrific value.
The radiance of the Vermentino varietal reflects intensely in the aromas of Solosole, a white wine that captivates with its intense hints of flowers and unexpected yellow fruit. The palate has a medium body, is succulent and highly enjoyable. The development of the wine in the glass suggests that it has the potential to evolve for a few years.
