The great virtue of this Vermentino is that it enhances the aromas and flavours peculiar to Bolgheri. Its clean, crisp flavour and purity are its distinguishing features. The grapes are harvested when their colour changes to an intense yellow. The name Solosole, meaning 'just sunshine', derives from the fact that the wine is essentially a direct result of the work undertaken in the vineyards and the ripening sun.
Golden yellow in colour with greenish hues, Solosole opens with notes of stone fruits such as peach and apricot, followed by sulphurous and flint-like notes. It has a medium body, with generous fruit character. The finish is long, dry and zesty, especially when young. It evolves interestingly in the glass, an indication of its excellent ageing capacity.
The radiance of the Vermentino varietal reflects intensely in the aromas of Solosole, a white wine that captivates with its intense hints of flowers and unexpected yellow fruit. The palate has a medium body, is succulent and highly enjoyable. The development of the wine in the glass suggests that it has the potential to evolve for a few years. Appetizers, raw fish and, thanks to its freshness and aromatic character, fried seafood, fish stews and vegetable dishes. Serve at 8-10°C and open just before serving.
