Vitiano Verdicchio Vermentino 2005

Vitiano Verdicchio Vermentino 750ml 2005     
Sku: 13003

Tasting notes
Cold maceration of the grapes, the fermentation andthe refinement in stainless steel keep the characteristics of the two varieties intact, making a mosaic from refined golden hues. The wine is sapid, fresh, well balanced with an elegant softness, a good structure and lingering aromas.

The crisp, elegant 2005 Vitiano Bianco, an equal part blend of unwooded Vermentino and Verdicchio, offers loads of tropical fruit, good body, impressive purity (a hallmark of all the Cotarella wines), and impeccable balance as well as length. It provides a heck of a glass of dry white for the price! It should be drunk during the first year of life Kudos to Riccardo and Renzo Cotarella for continuing to deliver remarkable wines at these prices. —Robert Parker

Wine maker notes
Vitiano Bianco was born from one of the many experimental vineyards Falesco has planted through its relationship with the University of Viterbo. The grapes (50% Vermentino and 50% Verdicchio) thrive in the sedimentary clay soils around the Marciliano estate. Harvested in late September, the grapes are crushed and vinified separately, then blended together to create an excellent wine of unparalleled value.

Technical notes
Vermentino 50%, Verdicchio 50%

Food pairing
Vitiano Bianco is the perfect accompaniment to pasta with shellfish, summer casseroles and garden salads.
