"The 2010 Vermentino Leopoldino flows from the glass with layers of beautifully delineated varietal fruit. Bright floral notes add lift to white stone fruit and lemon in this classy Vermentino. The Leopoldino is a wine of considerable personality and is also a great value. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2015." (08/11)
"85% Vermentino and 15% Viognier. Tasting notes: Straw yellow with greenish reflections, intense and fruity with floral notes as well. To full-bodied, well structured with a good balance between acidity and softness. The grapes are harvested by hand and vinified separately. The squeezing air is very delicate. The juice is cooled and carefully decanted. The fermentation takes place in steel tanks heat-conditioned at a temperature of 20 degrees C, with the help of selected yeasts. At the end of fermentation, the wine remains in contact with its lees (yeast) for a few months, until a few days before the assembly of the Vermentino Viognier and then bottled." - Winery
"Fattoria il Casalone is located along the southern costal area of Maremma in Tuscany, upstream from the Laguna of Orbetello. In this part of Tuscany, the cultivation of the grapevine dates back to the beginning of the 19th century as documented in the "Catasto Leopoldino", the land register office of the time, which contains a record of the Colombi vineyard which gave its name to the Poggio Colombi and Leopoldino wines of this estate."
"Nowadays, the vineyards are included in the Capalbio D.O.C. and IGT Maremma Toscana appellations. Under the direction of the agronomists Federico Curtaz and Stefano Bartolomei and in collaboration with the oenologist Paolo Caciorgna, this property is thriving to produce a most enjoyable Vermentino based wine. The proximity to the sea and the presence of hills which protect the north-eastern side of the terrain, along with soil composed of sand and gravel and rich in magnesium, makes for the perfect growing conditions for Vermentino,Viognier and Cabernet wines.
