Bomb Corsican Sangiovese and Malamo all done in cement in hard core granite soil. Super bright and fresh with wonderful structure and acid. It's like a man from the Loire married a lady from Montalcino.

Vermentino tasting. Winner of the night. Floral, mineral, scrub brush, seawater on a hot day.

Wow! I'd forgotten how yummy this old vine Vermentino is. Salty and tangy with whit floral aroma so you want to suck it down but not so fast as this sucker has real complexity to ponder.

Rather dramatic and complex for a vermentino. Quite interesting wet straw and stewed thyme notes after a day on the counter.

Vermentino. Floral with minerality. Not worth $30+ bucks.
