Bright straw-green. Strongly herbal and minty notes to the pomaceous orchard fruit on the nose. Then bright, dense and saline, displaying an impressive spectrum of unripe stone fruit to tropical fruit flavors, complicated by a note of anise. Finishes big, round and long. A very fleshy style of Vermentino (it spends roughly two months on the lees) that packs a lot of power. The wine’s name, “Tino,” is a diminutive of Vermentino, though it’s so big and round you couldn’t be blamed for thinking they should have called it “Tone,” as in “Vermentone.” The vines are planted on mainly schistous clay soils with a little limestone.

Perhaps the tastiest vermentino I've had the pleasure to sip...complex and lovely rosemary on the close... heavenly with crab cakes with aioli
