It is a fresh, youthful wine, with a bright straw yellow color and greenish reflections. On the nose it is reminiscent of the floral aromas of peach and acacia blossom as well as the fruity hints of Rennet apples and pineapple. It is well-balanced on the palate, with moderate acidity but elegantly rounded fruit. When poured, one notes a gentle, persistent foam, followed by a fine perlage that lifts the wine’s intense aromas and covers the tongue and palate with inviting taste sensations.
The color is an intense ruby red with faintly garnet tones. The initial aromatic sensations are sweetish and vanilla-like, typical of wines matured in barriques. The clean, ethereal bouquet then highlights Sangiovese’s spicy notes. On the palate we again find very well-integrated oak which, however, soon gives way to hints of wild berry fruit preserve and to that nuance of spices we perceived on the nose.
This dry white wine has a straw yellow color. Its clean, intense aroma and bone-dry taste (with an appealing flavor of Golden Delicious apples) make Santa Margherita’s Pinot Grigio a wine of great personality and versatility.
