Cantine Lunae Bosoni
2010 LVNAE Vermentino
La Bella Luna
- Final Assessment
- This is our first ever Vermentino and we could not have sleuthed a better example! Our tasting panel was universally intrigued by this fantastic wine, declaring it to be one of the most interesting imported white wines that we’ve ever featured. Broad and bright, across the palate, this delicious wine delivers a bevy of delicious flavors and aromas, coupled with a bright acidity and a feel that seems to expand across the palate as you sip it. Enjoy this wine, all on its own, or pair it with an assortment of foods, including hard cheeses, herb roasted chicken or a fresh pasta dish.
Winner of the prestigious Tre Bicchiere award (the highest honor) from Gambero Rosso, Italy’s most respected wine reviewer, this is one wine that you won’t want to miss. Supply is limited, so please act quickly. We’ve been selling out of a lot of wine, lately.
Dark golden yellow, with perfect clarity and a tightly springy surface. Glinting golden highlights that catch the light when swirled. Skinny legs start high on the glass, and then run very slowly downward.
Fragrant and lush and bright, with brilliant citrus zest, green apple, lemongrass, honeysuckle, yellow grapefruit and flint. After much swirling and after the wine warms, pineapple, dried white flowers, white spice and yellow apple emerge.
Bright flavors of yellow grapefruit, lime zest, Meyer lemon, flint, lemongrass, golden apple, soft white flowers, subtle white spice, subtle sweetwood and a hint of vanilla.
Medium long with fine, sweet and tart flavors that tail off to reveal white spice, minerals and dry white flowers.
