Varietal Focus: Vermentino

Vermentino

Italy (Maremma, Tuscany, Sardinia, (Favorita) Piedmont), France (Corsica)

Crisp- like a Sauvignon Blanc with subtle citrus pith yet simple nut oil  notes.  Marema is the southwestern sub region of Tuscany.  It is south of Siena and on the Ligurian and Tyrrhenian Seas.  Refreshing!

Pair with Linguini with fresh clams, swordfish, light dishes and salumi!
