Mission Codename Tuscany Calling...
Today we are offering the budget-priced McEvoy Ranch 2015 “Saimunn” Vermentino di Toscana. This is a very special white wine - and at today’s special price, you should probably stock up.
Lively, fresh and fragrant on the nose, with orange blossom, fresh fennel, nectarine, white peach, grapefruit, green apple and subtle almond.
On the palate, this wine is crisp and fresh, with flavors of nectarine, lime leaf, green apple, slate mineral, lemon drop, white tea and subtle white pepper.
McEvoy’s winemaking team consists of the incredibly talented duo of Dr. Maurizio Castelli and Blake Yarger. Dr. Caselli is the pioneer who helped to create such renowned wines as Col d’Orcia’s Poggio al Vento Brunello di Montalcino Riserva, Mastrojanni’s Brunello Schiena d’asino and Poderi Boscarelli’s Vino Nobile.
Dr. Caselli has more than 40 years of experience in winemaking and consulting all over the world, including at the famed Badia a Coltibuono in Tuscany. Blake Yarger has spent the last seven years at McEvoy, overseeing wine production there in collaboration with Dr. Castelli.
Today’s wine is one of the tastiest Italian-varietal whites we’ve ever shown. We offer it to you today with our heartiest recommendation.
