Marc’s next pour was a 2013 La Spinetta (Rivetti) Vermentino Casanova della Spinetta Toscana IGT from Tuscany. I love their label — not sure what a rhinocerus has to do with wine, but I like it.

La Spinetta Vermentino

La Spinetta Vermentino

It was a very pale, somewhat greenish color.  It took a few sips, but this wine grew on me over the next few minutes. Englewood Wine Merchants did a terrific write up on this wine — I didn’t experience all of these aromas and tastes, but certainly enjoyed this wine.
