Wine Tasting Note: Cecchi Litorale Vermentino, 2004, Tuscany, Italy.
Oddbins £7.99.
The colour of sun-splattered wheat followed by a tantalising aroma of candied fruits and white flowers. Medium to full bodied swept clean by crisp acidity. Flavours of tropical fruits abound reminiscent at times of a Viognier in its musky overcoat. Seafood is a natural partner but a simple creamy risotto was a delicious pairing.
Scribblings Rating - 92/100

The name comes from the littoral winds that come off the Mediterranean Sea to cool the vineyards. You might wonder why growers bother with Trebbiano and Vernaccia when Vermentino can produce such lovely wines; when did a Trebbiano ever get you excited? Vermentino is widespread in nearby Sardinia and Corsica and across the lower Rhone and Provence going under the name of Rolle.
