Fiori di Lutea 2022

IGT Tosccana

Fiori di Lutea IGT - Toscana Bianco - comes from a vineyard planted on Monte Amiata in Tuscany - IT.  It is the result of a collaboration originating with an idea of expressing the character and delicacy of a unique terroir. The vineyard is situated at over 500 m above sea level in a mountainous area with a north-east exposure. It is a completely isolated, being surrounded by dense woods and with the sea less than 30 km away. The soil is rich in heterogeneous clays and sand, with a high presence of limestone.

C: straw yellow with verdant reflections.

N: a distinctive bouquet of boxwood and lime with hints of elderflower and orange blossom in combination with white peach, citrus, and linden, with an underlying slightly woody note.

B: reaffirms the complexity found on the nose with the addition of an appealing savory note accompanied by mineral variations of flint and hints of orange peel. Excellent citrusy finish, decidedly persistent.

Ideal in combination with fish-based first courses and fried seafood, but it shines with fish and vegetable soups.  It also pairs well with soft fatty cheeses.vegetable soups.
