Uvaggio Vermentino
Uvaggio Wines
United States - California - Lodi

We nailed the Vermentino harvest in 2016. Not bragging, just a fact. We picked our grapes when the fruit flavors were in balance with the acidity, the result being an elegant wine with a most reasonable (for California, at least) alcohol level of only 12%. Jim Gordon in the Wine Enthusiast called it “a light-bodied, crisp and appetizing wine...It's a perfect summer-to-fall drink." Blue Apron wrote: "It’s as if the classic, light Italian Vermentino’s flavor and aroma knobs were dialed as high as they could go.” What other wine have you heard of that 100% of the critics (all two of them) who’ve reviewed the wine actually like it?

Aromas of chamomile and lemon verbena, with hints of wintergreen and beeswax; flavors are citrusy, plus kiwi fruit and pippin apple.

Wine Type
100% Vermentino

wine enthusiast 90 pts"Herbaceous aromas and bright citrus flavors give an almost-electric charge to this light-bodied, crisp and appetizing wine. Aromas of snap peas, parsley and fresh-cut grass lead to lemon and grapefruit flavors and a tingly mouthfeel. It's a perfect summer-to-fall drink. - JIM GORDON"
