Banfi, La Pettegola Vermentino 2019

(2021) Though Banfi is headquartered in Montalcino, the Vermentino grapes for this wine come from more coastal vineyards in the Maremma region of Tuscany. It's a delicate, perfumed style of crisp white wine, notes of talcum and peach down, a touch of elderflower in the background. In the mouth it has that combination that many Italian whites from the centre of the country share (Verdicchio, Vernaccia), of intensity and subtley. There is plenty of stony mineral salts acidity but gentle and clean citrus fruit, just a hint of that peachier quality on the mid-palate.
