Litorale

Toscana IGT

Wine of the sea, wine of love: simply Vermentino.

Litorale is a white wine produced by the Cecchi family in Maremma, a land where the sun, the sea, light and wind imprint characteristics unique to the Vermentino grape. A wine with floral aromas with hints of brininess and a taste that gives sensations of pleasant citrus and salty flavors, Litorale exhilarates the flavors of an untainted territory that Val delle Rose respects and interprets though quality winemaking.

Tasting notes Vermentino is a grape variety capable of giving excellent results in coastal areas, in sunny lands, just as the Maremma. So much so that Litorale perfectly interprets the territory from which it comes. The grapes are the first to be harvested at the end of August and first week of September. Its colour is pale yellow with light golden hues, has a very intense fruity aroma of summer ripe fruit. On the palate there is an important aromatic note combined with a pleasant persistence. It is 'a generous and intense wine, with great structure and freshness.
