POGGIO AL TESORO “Solosole” Vermentino 2014

(Bolgheri, Italy) $19

Bolgheri is on the Tuscan coast and there’s an aroma in the air there—a salty tang, wild Mediterranean herbs, the smell of warm sun on the parched earth (a version of garrigue). Solosole is 100% vermentino, and it will transport you to the Tuscan coast. I’ve written about this wine before, but now, on the cusp of spring, I find its intensely fresh, citrusy, bone-dry flavors irresistible. (And at $19, a real steal). Poggio Al Tesoro is owned by Marilisa Allegrini and her daughters. (The Allegrini family has long been famous for their Amarones).
