2008 Uvaggio di Giacomo Vermentino (Previously $12)

SKU #1061441

Since its founding in 1997, l'Uvaggio di Giacomo has been dedicated to producing wines from lesser known and greatly underappreciated Italian grape varieties grown in California. This 100% Vermentino comes from Lodi, of all places. And it is round and supple; lively yet subtle with lime, quince and pear aromas and flavors of melon and stone fruits. According to Wine Enthusiast: "A nice, crisp and bone-dry white wine. With little or no oak, it stars acidity, minerality and fruity flavors of pears, green melons, limes and spices. Good with Asian fare." (12/09)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Central Valley/Lodi

- With a reputation for bulk wine and table grapes, little to no quality wine has emerged from the expansive Central Valley since companies like Franzia and Gallo staked their claim here. The exception are new wine ventures in sub-AVAs Lodi and Clarksburg, home to jammy zinfandels and surprisingly distinguished chenin blancs respectively.
