Montenidoli, Carato, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, Tuscany 2019
(at Rome, 11 Oct 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2027
The most ambitious wine of this boutique organic winery, Carato spends 12 months in French oak barrels, and bursts with captivating scents of salted caramel, quince, saffron, and sweet spice. It boasts a pliant and creamy texture, with mouth-coating layers of honey and pear compote allied to judicious acidity and savory undertones. This luscious but poised Vernaccia has enough structure to withstand hearty dishes with black truffle shavings.
