92pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
I'm a huge fan of refreshing Vermentino from Coastal Tuscany, and some of the very best expressions are brought to us by the talented winemaking team at Poggio al Tesoro. The 2019 Bolgheri Vermentino Solosole is just the ticket for your beach picnic or your boat tour of the coast. This Vermentino opens to tangy and crisp aromas with citrus, white peach and spicy saffron. Dig a little deeper and you get salty mineral notes and a touch of wild sage. This wine is elaborate and textured, with creamy lean-bodied appeal.
The 2019 Vermentino Solosole shows the richer side of Vermentino, as always. At the same time, there is plenty of energy and nuance. Tangerine oil, apricot and perfumed floral notes build effortlessly in the glass. Solosole has been one of the most distinctive Vermentinos on the coast since it was first released. The 2019 is another fine edition. Drinking window: 2020 - 2025.
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.
