Verdeca 'Talò' San Marzano 2021

The Verdeca "Talò" by the winery San Marzano from Puglia is a white wine that with just one sip recalls the summer and the warm and Mediterranean atmosphere of Salento. The vineyards are situated at 100 metres above sea level on shallow soils. After a short cold maceration, the grapes are refined for 3 months in French oak barriques. The glass is filled with a straw-yellow mantle with golden reflections and the nose is intoxicated with scents of white flowers and vanilla. The taste is fresh, mineral and savoury with a pleasant finish

Medium open goblet
Medium open goblet

Perfect for young and medium bodied white wines which don't require excessive oxygenation to open. The opening, slightly tighter than the body of the glass, favors the concentration of aromas towards the nose, enhancing the perception of aromas and limiting the dispersion
