Lots of oak, but with tons of fruit and excellent balance the total package is extremely likable. There’s smoke, rubber and bacon on the bouquet, and then comes a deep offering of black plum, berry and vanilla. With second and third layers of depth and complexity, this is a wine that exudes quality.
Here are exemplary Vernaccia aromas of green apple, pear, stone fruit and a light sprinkling of peppermint. The wine’s bouquet is intense and pristine and the feel in the mouth is compact, easy but refreshing.
Seafood platters loaded with steamed mussels and spicy crab cakes call out for a fresh, vibrant Vernaccia just like this bottling. Massimo Daldin offers touches of vanilla cream, yellow fruits and nuts, which give it momentum and character.
Lightweight, with innocuous aromas of pie cherry, tobacco and earth. Mostly dried fruits on the palate, including cherry and red plum. Tangy and thin on the finish, but with a puncher’s chance.
