Vermentino, a variety cultivated in the Mediterranean basin since ancient times, is the best white grape interpretation of the virgin territory of the Tuscan coast. The Vermentino Ammiraglia, is a lovely, intense straw -yellow colour, surprising for its floral and candied-fruit notes, as well as for its intriguing minerality. The palate reveals body and persistence.
