Vermentino Colli di Luni "Etichetta Nera", Cantine Lunae Bosoni, Liguria, Italy, 2022
Grape: 100% Vermentino, 35 year old vines, hand picked, unoaked, short skin maceration and 4 months' lees ageing
The "Etichetta Nera" wine was first produced in 1992 from vineyards located between the Colli Luni hills and Castelnuovo Magra on the Ligurian coast, north of Tuscany.
Producer Tasting Note:
Straw yellow color. The nose opens with hints of ripe fruit with yellow flesh, in particular apricot and peach. The fruit is embellished with notes of acacia flowers and Mediterranean scrub and accompanied by briny and balsamic notes. In the mouth the vertical and vibrant freshness and sapidity balance the large and rounded body, with good alcohol content. The long and persistent finish has notes of almond and recalls the pleasant notes of ripe fruit.
Critics' Tasting Notes:
"Herbaceous and grassy with a zingy passionfruit ripeness, a zesty acidity and a long finish."
88/100 points, Decanter World Wine awards, January 2023
"Pale straw yellow. Peppery, ripe white-peach nose. Exotically perfumed white peach on the palate with the perfect dose of acidity. Textured, long and deep and with mouth-filling aromas on the finish." Drink 2023-2030
17.5/20 points, Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com, April 2023
The wine’s structure makes it particularly suitable for the most substantial dishes of the Ligurian cuisine such as stockfish, stewed tripe, poultry, soups and fish.
