VISTAMARE

cmcvistamare-NVlabel300dpi_600w

The playful name of this wine was inspired by the sea breeze, sun, and cheerful and light-hearted outlook of the Tuscan coast. “Vistamare” means sea view and is often used by the coastal hoteliers to entice would-be guests, even though their rooms may only offer a limited view of the Mediterranean. The vineyards used for Vistamare actually enjoy a panoramic view of the Tuscan horizon and their grapes are gently touched by the saltine air and brilliant colors of the Tuscan sea. 2016 is a vintage of concentration and power. Vistamare is a very limited production wine and the only white wine produced by the Ca‘ Marcanda estate, providing wine collectors with a true gem: Angelo Gaja’s exclusive expression of Tuscan white wine.

Appellation: Toscana IGT

Varieties: 60% Vermentino and 40% Viognier

Tasting Notes:  This wine is balanced in all its  components—It shows a ripe fruit   expression, with notes of stone fruits  (white peach and apricot), honey and a  particular floral character (blossom and jasmine). The finish is sweet and fresh at  the same time.
