Gigi Rizzi Collection N°03 is the third moment of an excellence project developed through a long path of 6 different Collection, each one of them unique and peculiar, wanted by the company to represent the great work of Luigino Rizzi, enologist and Seiterre’s owner.
The company, arrived to its 5th generation, did not lose the enthusiasm and the passion for the communication of the vineyards’ values and for the company’s most representative territories, a profound bond consumes respecting traditions and valued by specific “Limited Edition” which pick the great work of selection, attention and cure.
The Gigi Rizzi Collection N°03 brings us in the heart of the Maremma region to glorify a great Vermentino 2020 produced in only 2.300 bottles. The diamond tip of the Seiterre’s quality, of healthy and mature grapes coming from the Tenuta Poggio Le Capannelle in Civitella Paganico, in the Grosseto province, cultivated in 70 hectares of land 50 of which are screwed and put in an altitude of 200 meters on the sea level, is all on the tasting of the 2214 bottle that give us the pleasure of a Mediterranean wine glass, drawing on the sun’s strength, on the sea breeze, on markedly suites soils.
The perfection of the harvest grapes after and accurate selection, gives the wine the intense aromas of the crunchy green apple, of the notes of apricot, of the sweetness of the acacia honey, of the white flowers’ perfume, softened by a mineral force and by a sharp freshness which gives a palatal sensation of great harmony and equilibrium with an elegant sweet almond final.
This wine is perfect paired with grilled squid or with an appetizer with zucchini blossoms and artichokes.
