Lovely and refreshing. Lime zest and orchard fruits. Simple and yummy with summer veg.

Session 3 of Wine Essentials One at the Institute of Culinary Education Center for Wine Studies.

A Vernaccia from Tuscany, not too far from the Chianti region. Young but complex, with a light-medium viscosity. On the nose are mint, herbs (especially sage), white peaches and fresh almond. Even though this is a young wine, the complex aromas make the nose appear old. There is a touch of bitterness in its taste, and it has coconut and tropical fruit flavors. It is fairly earthy with a slightly long finish.
