Maremma Toscana is an appellation title covering a wide array of wine styles from the province of Grosseto in Tuscany. It was officially promoted to DOC status in September 2011, after 16 years as an IGT title.
Vermentino is a white wine grape grown in various locations, and under various names, around the western Mediterranean. Strongholds include northwestern Italy, southern France and the neighboring islands of Corsica and Sardinia.
The vineyards are sandy with sandstone skeleton, the soil is homogeneous.
On ripening the grapes are harvested, depending on the weather conditions, between late August and mid-September.
Traditional white vinification, takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature (max 18° C). Ageing on the yeasts takes place for about one month in the same tanks. Refrigeration at 0° and filtration then follows. The wine is bottled by February, following the harvest.
