Sassotondo Toscana Vendemmia 2004

Since my palette's accustomed to new world wines, the subtlty of Old World wines are sometimes a stretch for me.  In this case, from the smell of it, earthy and light fruit, could prove to be a challenging wine for me.  The taste of it is on the light, non-viscous side, and has a vanilla quality to it.  But, has good holding power along with the "gourmet" Target pizza (archer farms mediterranean vegetable pizza) I'm eating.  In the end, I'd say this is a really nice food wine — not surprising with Old World — and I'll have to see how this works by itself.

What's vendemmia mean?  Apparently, it means harvest or vintage in Italian.  I wonder if the root of this word has to to with selling, since the French verb "vendre" means to sell.

Here's the importer's coverage of the wine.
