Vistamare 2017

Toscana IGP
  • 75cl bottle

This wine opens with intense floral notes of acacia and linden flowers. On the palate, it is fresh and compact with notes of bergamot, pear, nectarine and white currant before moving towards a more mineral and spicy character, with notes of flint, rosemary and saffron. The wine gets riper in the finish with hints of mango, along with a slight hint of olives.

Vineyards

“Vistamare” means sea view and is often used by the coastal hoteliers to entice would-be guests, even though their rooms may only offer a limited view of the Mediterranean. The vineyards used for Vistamare actually enjoy a panoramic view of the Tuscan horizon and their grapes are gently touched by the salt air and brilliant colours of the Tuscan sea.

Vintage

2017 saw balanced wines with power and concentration. Mild and dry conditions in the Winter continued through to the Spring with an early bud break. Late Spring and Summer were dry and warmer than usual, leading to a vintage with smaller quantities than average but with great quality, thanks also to careful vineyard management and gentle winemaking. The harvest began on August 7 with the Viognier and ended on August 25 with the Fiano.

Winemaking

Very limited production, a characterful expression of Tuscan white winemaking which is fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks and barrels.
