Wine Review: Cecchi La Mora Vermentino 2014

Cecchi La Mora Vermentino 2014

Vermentino is big on the island of Sardinia but also has plantings here and there on the Italian mainland and southern France. This one is from the Maremma subregion of Tuscany, and it's by the famous Cecchi winery.

The Cecchi family got into the winemaking business in 1893 with Luigi Cecchi, and the first bottles of Cecchi labeled wines were produced in the early 1900's. However, the land that their winery and estate vineyards are on has been making wine for over a thousand years. Today it's run by Andrea and Cesare Cecchi, and they pride themselves on their practice of sustainability.

NOTE: In advance of moving to a new house and the arrival of a new baby, the reviews for March, April and May were written in February (this one in March, actually) and may be much quicker and to the point than you expect from this blog. Foolishness will return this summer.

The color of the wine is a light golden yellow. There's aromas of chives, yellow pear, and apple sauce. It's light in body weight but its oily mouthfeel makes it seem bigger than it really is. There's a ton of green apple on the palate, with yellow pear and a squirt of lime in the background. It finishes with a flash of apple that disappears quickly, leaving your mouth alone with acidity begging you to drink more.

Hey man, this is some good Vermentino! I kinda want to sip it while I nibble on some antipasto.
