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.
