Torre di Giano Vigna Il Pino
Origin: Torgiano, Umbria, Italy
Varietal: Vermentino, Grechetto and Trebbiano
Producer's notes: This special selection of Torre di Giano from the “Il Pino” vineyard cru. It was one of the first barrel-aged white wines in Italy, produced since the early 1970s anticipating more recent trends. Its characteristic is the discreet presence of wood which limits itself to supporting the wine’s structure, making it particularly pleasant for food pairings.
Colour: straw yellow of good intensity with hints of brilliant green, which over the years tends towards golden hues.
Bouquet: fruity (yellow peach and citrus fruit) and with good complexity; finish is lightly floral with refined hints of woodiness.
Flavour: the softness of linden-flower honey and sweetness of pear and jasmine accompany a delicate, citrus-like acidity; persistent and sapid closing notes; fresh and slightly mineral, almost saline, on the finish.
