Description

A blend (70-30) of estate-grown Vermentino and Trebbiano grapes. Vermentino is a typical white wine grape of Tuscany, while Trebbiano is found in almost every region of Italy and is used for blending. Harvested in mid September, when the skins are golden.

Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks for 15 days, and then ages for about 3 months in stainless steel tanks to maintain fresh and clean aromas and flavours in the finished wine.

Tasting Note

Our Tasting Note: Bright, pale straw-gold colour, with fresh, floral aromas and flavours of citrus, apple, and pear, with slightly herbal (sage)/spicy/mineral notes. Crisp, dry, firm, and well-structured (medium-bodied) with a long, clean finish.

Menu Matches: Will complement most appetizers, salads, seafood, and pasta with cream-based sauces. Also great on its own.

About the Grape

Vermentino: Highly aromatic and crisp white wine variety, grown throughout Italy, but produces best in Tuscany and Sardinia. Same as Favorita in Piedmont.

Trebbiano: The Tuscan variety, is also known as Ugni Blanc in France (probably brought to France during the period of the papal residences in Avignon), and at one time was part of the obligatory blend in Chianti. It is a relatively neutral grape aromatically, with high acidity, and therefore excellent for blending.

Poggio Stenti

Poggio Stenti is a small family winery, managed by Eleonora Pieri. Annual production from their small estate is less than 1000 cases. They also grow olives, to be made into their own olive oil, and her father (Carlo) is one of the most famous salumi producers in Tuscany.

The region is known as Montecucco, a relatively new DOC in Tuscany. They are specifically located in Monte Amiata, a prized location which borders the historic vineyards of Montalcino, a few kilometres east.

Poggio Stenti’s hillside vineyards are at 200 meters above sea level, along the Orcia River, which separates Sienna Province from Grosetto Province. Most of the vineyards are planted to Sangiovese fro Tribolo and Pian di Staffa, but they also grow a few rows of Cabernet Sauvignon for a wine that is produced only in a top vintages. They also grow Trebbiano and Vermentino for a IGT white wine.
