    "Solosole Pagus Camilla" Vermentino Bolgheri DOC 2015

    Pagus Camilla comes from a small plot called "Camilla" near the Sondraia vineyards. Here the Vermentino grape experiences a higher concentration during maturation with delicate hints of Riesling. This "project wine", produced in very small quantities, is a unique example of the potential of this grape variety in Bolgheri. Pure and beautiful, citrus aroma, salt, minerality and with full fruit, balanced and long. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Smells complexly of ripe pears and Mediterranean Macchia, on the palate roundly, with pithy acidity and, nevertheless, also much strength, smooth and pleasantly herbaceous the exit. "Opulent Vermentino that can also mature. Vinum

    "Poggio al Tesoro’s top Vermentino comes from the Sandraia vineyard, close to the Camilla River in coastal Bolgheri. The grapes are taken from a specific west-facing part of the vineyard on deep, sandy soils with gravel and clay. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel and the wine remains in tank on its lees for nine months before bottling. Just 4,000 cases were produced in 2015, which is regarded as an exceptional vintage in Bolgheri. This is certainly a step up from the entry level Solosole, and provides a richer style with more aroma, minerality, structure and intensity. On the palate it provides well judged white stone fruits and ripe peach alongside a savoury, almond-like lees character. There's excellent balance and harmony here throughout, and the finish is impressively long." Decanter

    "This is a selection of the best grapes from the estate on the coast of Tuscany. It shows a beautiful length and refinement yet a wonderful dense palate and plenty of fruit and structure. Love the sliced-pear, lilac and apple character. One of the best vermentinos I have tasted." James Suckling

    "Poggio Al Tesoro has recently dedicated extra resources and effort to shaping their unique identity for the Vermentino grape. The 2015 Bolgheri Vermentino Solosole Pagus Camilla pushes the boundaries one step further. Often considered a work horse grape for easy-sipping summer drinking, this wine shows the depth and fruity creaminess that can be achieved with this versatile Italian grape. The bouquet offers beautiful tones of stone fruit, cantaloupe melon and passion fruit. This is a lovely wine." Robert Parker
