Tasting notes

There was a good amount of rainfall in winter 2021/2022, as well as in spring 2022. This situation created sufficient water reserves for the subsoil. The budding took place a few days later than usual, but the increased temperatures led to smooth vegetative development. Summer days with above-average temperatures allowed the Vermentino grapes to ripen splendidly. Consequently the aromatic evolution was magnificent. The sun and the refreshing sea breezes were the perfect companions during the harvest period; both allowed the plants to achieve compositional balance that reflects this microclimate. The most genuinely Mediterranean expression of Tuscany.

Wine Variety: Vermentino

Maturation: in steel

Alcohol content: 12%

Organoleptic Notes: Cala Forte Vermentino 2022 is bright straw yellow to the eye, with greenish highlights. On the nose, it presents citrus hints of cedar and mandarin, accompanied by notes of exotic fruits such as mango and passion fruit. The olfactory finish is floral with iodine overtones. On the palate, it is full-bodied and fresh at the same time; savoury and lively, the taste is satisfying and suitably persistent.

Wine pairing: It is a perfect match for fish dishes, shellfish, timbales and first courses made with vegetables.

Available formats: 0.75 l
