A golden white wine with soft, green reflections, an intense nose of exotic fruit and aromatic, elegant flavors of peach and apple with a long finish on the palate.
The Vermentino Di Macchia is the project of Sebastiano Pompa, whose experience as General Manager of Fattoria Le Pupille inspired him in 2012 to begin finally making his own wines. The wine’s profile, the selection of grapes and even the design of the bottle are the result of his 20 years of experience in the wine industry. The grapes used to make it were grown in the stony soils of the Maremma reserve in Capalbio, Tuscany and harvested by hand. The vineyards here are characterised by a sharp contrast in conditions between night and day thanks to their location just three to five kilometres from the sea. The chilly nights allow the vines to recover from the hot Tuscan sun and develop delicate aromas, and were grown here based on Sebastiano’s knowledge that the most interesting wines in Maremma would come directly from the seaside, rather than the hillside.
