Marchesi di Frescobaldi Vermentino Ammiraglia Toscana 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dried citrus rings and hints of dried floral leesy character greet the nose along with some mineral notes, quite vitamin toned, and suggestions of honey, sweet almonds and orange blossoms. Wide and yet bright in the mouth, this shows off fairly complex flavors of dried citrus peels, a touch of dried herb and some spicy dried apple notes. A little pineapple emerges on the midpalate which is rather elegant if fairly full. Silky hands yet delicate on the moderately long finish where some dried apricot notes emerge along with the sweet nutty tone that was found on the nose. A lovely wine with hints of that vitamin tinged minerality popping on the finale. 90pts

The Marchesi de' Frescobaldi is one of the most significant wine producers in Italy, with nine estates, and more than 1,000 hectares, in Tuscany. The family has been growing wine since the early 14th century, when they became the first in Tuscany to import and plant French vine cuttings. Because they have been producing wines for more than 700 years, to experience Frescobaldi is to glimpse the history of Florence, from the Middle Ages to the present day. The core wine growing philosophy of the Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi revolves around the integrated relationship among environment, vine, climate, and man’s intervention. They continually upgrade their extensive vineyard holdings, and they craft their wines with the finest combination of traditional and innovative methods.
