A beautiful pale gold Viognier with elegant flavours of acacia, apricots and almonds. Limited edition. Decanter Silver Medal

Villa Pinciana stretches across the hills in the southernmost tip of Tuscany. The soils here are a characteristic red colour, thanks to the local clay, and the breeze from the Tyrrhenian sea blows through the vineyards. This creates a rather unique terroir, as the morning and evening winds moderate the hot and dry climate. This cooling influence helps to retain natural acidity in the grapes, ultimately producing refreshing wine with a comfortably low level of alcohol.

Made from 100% Viognier, this wine reminds us of fresh white flowers, almonds and ripe apricots. Paolo Caciorgna, the winemaker at Villa Pinciana, usually uses Viognier in premium blends. A few years ago he created a pure Viognier wine as a special project, and it was so good it won the Decanter Silver Medal in 2018. Inspired by this success, he started to produce a small volume of 100% Viognier – enough to fill only 1,300 bottles per year. We are really happy to have snatched a small stock of this elegant wine, from the batch that won the medal.

Tasting notes: Pale gold in colour, it’s delicate on the nose with aromas of grapefruit, golden apple and acacia. this is underpinned by hints of orange peel and dried apricots. The wine is light, with a slightly oily texture and medium level of alcohol. In the mouth, it offers a fresh and elegant taste of white flowers, dried apricots and almonds.
