La Spinetta Il Vermentino di Casanova Toscana IGT

This fresh, lively white sees only stainless steel with aromas of bright citrus, flowers, herbs and a touch of meringue on the nose. Nuanced and wonderfully focused, the Vermentino has an energy and acidity that drives the wine’s enticing personality. This is a medium-to full-bodied wine with good density, ideal enjoyed quite young.

Lemons, grapefruits, jasmine, green apples, sea shells, and thyme on the nose. It's so fresh and vibrant, with zesty acidity and a linear, focused palate. Minerally at the end. Drink now.

Wine Advocate on 2017 vintage

Italian Vermentino is enjoying a moment of immense popularity, and it's easy to see why. The 2017 Vermentino is bright, crisp and linear. The Casanova della Spinetta property is located near the Tuscan Coast, not too far from Pisa and Volterra. That slightly inland positioning means that this expression does not have the chiseled citrusy quality you often get with the grape. Instead, this loose and fresh white (made without malolactic fermentation) offfers yellow fruit flavors with an elegant mineral signature of crushed oystershell. Fruit is selected for this wine during four separate harvests.

James Suckling on 2016 vintage

A delicious and tangy white with sliced apple, pear and fresh lemon character. Medium to full body, layered and energetic. Shows depth and beauty at the finish. Drink or hold.
