- Uvaggio Vermentino Lodi 2012 Product #28648 (In Stock)
Former Mondavi Cal-Ital winemaker Jim Moore crafts this delicious Vermentino from fruit grown in two sunny, dry, vineyards in Lodi California. As usual, Jim harvested his fruit in early September, giving him perfectly ripe fruit at low sugar levels and with great natural acidity. This year, about 10% spent a few months in neutral oak to add a little more rich complexity, but the main story remains the brisk lime, quince, and pear aromas and melon and stone fruit flavors. As always, this finishes crisp and with a bit of the tang of the sea to it, making it as brilliant with seafood as it is by itself on the back deck. As Jancis Robinson said of the 2008, “one mouthful of this was enough to remind me of a lunch in Liguria high above the sparkling blue Mediterranean."
"BEST BUY! From two vineyard sources in Lodi, Uvaggio’s Vermentino is always a delicious bet, with crisp, light melon fruit and a salty quality that calls out for food from the sea. Modest in alcohol, the texture is mouthwateringly addictive, a quality that follows through from first sip to last."Wine Enthusiast 89 points
