2017 Barboursville Vermentino Reserve Virginia

A Virginia Vermentino that’s on point

2017 Barboursville Vermentino Reserve Virginia
Winemaker Luca Paschina trained originally in Alba and made wine in Piemonte, Puglia, Napa, the Finger Lakes, and Switzerland before landing at Barboursville in 1990. This varietal Vermentino shows the thumbprint of his native Italy. Nearly colorless, it’s a shimmery, clear elixir redolent of green citrus, bay leaf, straw, and sea air. The palate is rounded with ripe citrus, peach, and yellow apple with a lick of salt at the finish. The acidity is succinct but sufficient. An utterly correct Vermentino from the New World.
