FATTORIA DI POGGIOPIANO/GALARDI WINERY -- FIESOLE, ITALY -- PART 5


TUSCAN WINES TO DIE FOR -- WITHOUT EVEN 
HAVING TO JOURNEY TO THE CHIANTI REGION

White wine ERTA AL MANDORLO, also organically grown with the fruit of the Trebbiano toscano (60%), Verdicchio (40%) vines with what tasted like notes of pineapple to our untrained taste buds.

The Galardi's say "perfumes are discreet, reminiscent of minerals and citrus, with nuances of sage ending in light spicy sensations."

"Goes well with raw and  grilled fish; also with fish based dishes that require a wine of a medium-high consistency," says Mauro, noting that best consumption is within four years from harvest.

"Harvest and selection grapes are carried out with attentive care using crates with ventilation openings."

"Crates are taken from the vineyard to the cellar paying attention not to damage grapes, so as to avoid  oxidation or undesired fermentation processes."

Soft pressing immediately after harvest aids in maintaining the freshness of primary flavors."

"A unique wine, intense, with flavors that will continue to evolve in the glass offering ever new sensations."
