SCORES AND REVIEW

TEIA 2015

Robert Parker 86/100

The 2015 Vermentino Teia opens to floral aromas of white rose and honeysuckle at the frontline. Peach and citrus appear at the back. This is a simple wine to enjoy within the next 12 to 18 months. Teia’s structure is slightly more elaborate and richer than your standard, easy-drinking Vermentino.

TEIA 2017

Robert Parker 87/100

This is a fresh, warm-climate white wine to pair with fried calamari rings or sardines. The 2017 Bolgheri Vermentino Teia opens to citrus, grapefruit and tangy white peach. In terms of mouthfeel, this lightweight wine is zesty and clean.
