Occhio a Vento
Vermentino Maremma Toscana Doc






The Vermentino grapes cultivated in the sun-drenched vineyards of the Casamaria estate in the Maremma area, which was acquired in 2003 by the Zingarelli family, constitute the main component of this wine.

The name 'Occhio a Vento' (which roughly translates as 'Eye of the Wind' derives from an expression typically used by the fisherfolk of the coast of the Maremma to denote that vortex of clouds pierced by sunlight that is created when the weather is about to turn.

This particular atmospheric phenomenon is considered by the fisherfolk to be an augur of good fortune because it portends a successful day's fishing. Straw-yellow in color, the aroma offers up floral notes that recall acacia blossom and broom, which then give way to delicate fruity perfumes of apple and pineapple. The palate is dry, smooth and pleasantly fresh.
