Verdone (‘greenfinch’) is named after the small green bird that frequents the vineyards of this small family estate in Tuscany, the yellow-green flashes in its feathers similar to the lemon-lime reflections from this Vermentino.
Steel fermented and bottled while young, the nose is expressive and elegant marked by floral notes of elderflower, peach blossom and lychee. Crisp and refreshing on the open, salty and mineral characteristics support an opulent mid-palate loaded with melon, pear and stone-fruit, finishing with cut lime and a wisp of aniseed. This is very, very tasty.
Serve as an aperitif or with anything fishy, herby or citrussy, it goes particularly well with prosciutto.
