This 2017 'Lintóri' Vermentino was fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks on the lees for six months before bottling. The end result is a sneakily complex wine that stopped us in our tracks when we first tried it. Aromas burst from the glass with scents of white flowers, lemongrass, pineapple, exotic fruit and nectarine. The fuller, medium-bodied palate has a great weight and texture that brings those aromas into full focus as concentrated flavors revealing additional notes of juicy peach, Fuji apple and dried herbs. The wine ends in a rather unctuous way with surprisingly fresh acidity, definitive minerality and a lingering tinge of honey. Beautifully distinctive on its own, this wine really doesn’t need any food yet it should prove equally tasty with a creamy seafood pasta or roasted halibut with a fragrant butter sauce.
