The Tuscan Maremma area of  Vermentino 
The production of Vermentino Maremma Toscana DOC has now firmly surpassed that of other wines of the appellation, despite the fact that the vine represents only 10% of the area under vines.
This is thanks to its modernity, well expressed by its fresh but non-trivial bouquet capable of facing even aging
As pointed out by the Consortium itself: "In the province of Grosseto, Vermentino, with 914 hectares compared to 138 in 2006, is the vine that is growing with the highest percentages, no other cultivar is doing it so steadily in recent years, today the Tuscan Maremma is the most important cultivation area of ​​the peninsula for Vermentino ».

The wines offered are all of high quality and different from each other based on the production area, the winemaking methods used and the vintage.
