Vermentino Principe Corsini is born in Marsiliana in Manciano, southern Maremma, where the proximity of the sea is felt in the climate, seen in the light, and breathed in the air. The vineyards, which the large extent of the land has made it possible to position in the area with a maximum wine-growing vocation, count about 20 hectares in total.
The soils of Marsiliana are composed prevalently of sand and silt over clay, giving life to extraordinary Mediterranean expressions of a Bordeaux blend.
Vermentino, 100% Vermentino aged in stainless steel, blends the characteristics of the grape variety with the unique aspects of the territory. The result is a fresh, immediate, and saline wine that remids about the sea.
Soft pressing after destemming of whole grapes harvested by hand; 16-hour skin maceration; fermentation for 16 days at 12 °C.
The glare of the sun’s rays on the turquoise sea of the Tuscan coast sparkles in this bright wine with a brilliant and lively aroma. An expressive rainbow through the scents of peach peel, lemon zest, fresh mango, crunchy apricots and pineapple juice anticipate a stratified and tasty sip.
The palate is deliciously delicate, fruity but with a verticality given by the balanced citrus tension combined with a bright flavour. A wine of finesse with a Mediterranean character.
Avocado toast with smoked salmon.
