Marsiliana Estate is located in Manciano in southern Maremma in Tuscany, where the proximity of the sea is felt in the climate, seen in the light, and breathed in the air. Because the estate’s territory is so extensive, the vineyards have been positioned at optimum plots among the hillocks for a total of 20 hectares. 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 savory wine with great
Tasting and pairing notes:
This Vermentino is a wine of the sea, to be precise of the Tyrrhenian Sea, which is so different from other Mediterranean seas. Bordered with low woods and pine forests, where golden sand sparks and it is rare the rock, where the shells reach the shore in the emerald waters. So is this wine, with the yellow color of a ray of light, that expresses with refreshing aromas of herbs like mint and sage, a floral touch of lemon blossom and juicy citrus fragrance of grapefruit and tropical pineapple and mango touch. The sip has a vital and thrilling freshness, green apple and lemon are joyous shades that illuminate the palate like a breeze on a sunny path. Exciting with a salad of crab and summer vegetables, but also with a simple slice of bread with fresh butter and anchovies.
