Montauto Vermentino, Maremma, Tuscany
Pulled the Rabbit out of the hat ...
Tastes like: Pear. Peach. Floral. Italian Herbs. Vegetal. Minerality. Fresh Acidity.
We have to say this is a truly beautiful Vermentino with classic herbal notes and hints of minerality. Stunning poise and elegance and from this organic practising producer!
It has lovely complexity and a riveting acidic finish.
Owner Riccardo Lepri took over the estate from his grandfather Enos in 2001. Alongside winemaker Fabrizio Moltard, they decided to focus on producing mainly white wines, unusual for Tuscany's up-and-coming Maremma region.
Following an organic approach, they make wines with concentrated flavours that have really generated interest amongst critics.
This represents amazing value coming from the wilds of Tuscany.
