Vermentino Poggio Nibbiale, Tasting notes:
Poggio Nibbiale’s Vermentino is a creamy white wine. It combines fresh citrus aromas with aromas of ripe tropical fruit that give it a unique style.
That of Poggio Nibbiale is a special story, which begins far away, in Germany… The Buchheim family had always dreamed of having a vineyard in Tuscany. Their wish came true when the Poggio Nibbiale winery was founded in 1998. Their dream of cultivating wine in the beautiful scenery of southern Tuscany became reality. The vineyards of Poggio Nibbiale are located in the hills of Maremma between Scansano and Magliano, 300 metres above the Tyrrhenian Sea, with a magnificent view of Giglio Island, Elba, Montecristo and the Monte Argentario peninsula.
Vermentino Poggio Nibbiale, Vinification:
Selective harvesting by hand, destemming, pressing with a pneumatic press and subsequent fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. After a period of bâtonnage, this wine matures in stainless steel tanks until bottling. In the case of the Vermentino grape variety, decantation and in particular the natural activity of the grape’s own enzymes are of great importance. The grape variety is very demanding.
