2020 Peteglia Vermentino

$25.00

Montecucco DOC
The Peteglia vermentino is a lovely, bright expression of the grape with an elegant balance between juicy fruit and a slightly saline minerality. Aromas of orange blossoms, ocean breezes, and a slightly flinty edge make this a superb aperitivo with olives, nuts, and cheese or an excellent companion to pastas and lighter meats. It’s a perfect spring wine, and is sure to brighten your day.

Peteglia Winery

Peteglia Peteglia is an estate that’s dear to us. It’s run by two brothers, Alessandro and Marco. They grew up here, on their family farm, and then left home to study and work, acquiring a number of skills. After a decade or so, they returned to the farm, established an agriturismo, and set about turning the family vineyards into a world-class operation. Alessandro works the vineyards, and Marco takes care of the cellar. Between the two of them, they give these wines careful attention at every stage. You can taste their skill and care in every sip.

Montecucco might be the best-kept secret in Tuscany. The appellation is situated just south of Montalcino, between that famous town and Scansano, which you know from the Morellino di Scansano that we import. It’s an area that gets plenty of heat, but which still receives the moderating influence of sea breezes. Grapes grown here ripen beautifully, achieving much of the complexity that Brunello di Montalcino is famous for.
