Fattoria di Magliano Pagliatura Vermentino della Maremma

The name Pagliatura, meaning “hay,” references the golden color of the wine.  White peach, apple, and pear aromas abound, while floral notes further enhance the bouquet.  A hint of mint adds an interesting component to the flavor profile.  Vinified in stainless steel to allow maximum fruit expression, the wine is refined on the fine lees for 3 months.  Although bottle aged for an additional 6 months, this wine remains fresh.  A savory wine to enjoy with a meal.

Fresh, dry and subtle grape expression. Lemon sorbet, baked apple and sweet spice define a long palate with elegant acidity.

Tuscan white with a lovely density and mouth feel. Medium body, fresh acidity and a flavorful finish. Pretty texture. Drink now.

“A pretty vermentino-based white with sliced-apple, melon and tangy pineapple aromas and flavors. Full-bodied and oily but fresh. Flavorful finish. Drink now.”

Lemon, white flowers and mint race from Fattoria di Magliano’s 2013 Vermentino Pagliatura. The 2013 is decidedly extroverted and racy, but it all works.

Bright straw-yellow.  Aromas of nectarine, spring flowers and orange zest.  Juicy and fruit-driven, with good intensity and purity to the stone and citrus fruit flavors.  In a fresh, clean style, but Pagliatura, which is generally one of the best vermentinos of the Tuscan Coast, usually has a bit more concentration and length.

The 2011 Vermentino della Maremma Toscana Pagliatura is gorgeous. This is one of the few 2011 Tuscan whites that has great freshness and verve. Pears, flowers, apples and mint are some of the nuances that caress the palate on the finish. This is a strong showing from Fattoria di Magliano. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2014.

The 2010 Vermentino Pagliatura is layered with rich apricots, flowers and spices, all of which come together nicely in this textured, inviting white. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.

Bright yellow. Displays m ore ripe fruitiness on the nose than recent vintages, hinting at stone fruits, pineapple and mint. Gives a sweet impression on entry, then turns fleshy and soft, showing considerable verve and lift thanks to bright acids. I like its flavors of ripe pear and peach complicated by citrus and floral notes, but this very fruit-forward style of vermentino may confuse those who prefer a more herbal, mineral-accented version. This tasty, tactile wine will offer great short-term drinking.

Juicy ripe pears, melon, flowers and smokiness are some of the nuances that flow from the 2009 Vermentino della Maremma Toscana Pagliatura. This is a fairly rich, textured style of Vermentino built on a core of expressive, generous fruit as opposed to the simpler, more fragrant versions that are typical of this grape. Accordingly, the Pagliatura is best paired with richer foods and should work nicely with dishes that contain spice and/or heat. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2012.
