About Poggio Maestrano Vermentino Maremma
Poggio Maestrano Vermentino Maremma is straw yellow in color, with full hints of peach and rosemary flowers; in the mouth, it is fine and elegant with floral and fruity aromas typical of the grape. A marked flavor, balanced freshness, and liveliness come on fast at the finish.
Vermentino is a white wine grape grown in various locations, and under various names, around the western Mediterranean. Strongholds include northwestern Italy, southern France, and the neighboring islands of Corsica and Sardinia.
In Tuscany, the vineyards produce some of Italy’s very richest Vermentino. The Tuscan climate – warmer and sunnier – combines with winemaking techniques such as skin contact, lees contact, and barrel aging to create Vermentino, whose weight and aromatic complexity might be compared to that of Viognier.
About Poggio Maestrano
Poggio Maestrino’s history is rooted in the Etruscan-Roman period, to which the earliest evidence and findings date back. For centuries, the Amiata-Maremma area played an atypical role in Tuscany: this district, which is full of vast wooded areas, discouraged the expansion of sharecropping for centuries.
Starting in the late 18th century, the municipalities around Scansano experienced a significant population increase, extending the perimeters of housing settlements. This phenomenon played a fundamental role in the subsequent development of viticulture in the entire Maremma area, an agricultural practice that became increasingly popular over the centuries until the boom of Morellino di Scansano, which is now one of the most prestigious red wines in the region, sanctioned by the Consorzio di Tutela institution in 1992 and recognized as DOCG since the 2007 harvest.
