Prepare to be stung! This wine is from Il Palagio, a 350 hectare Tuscan estate owned by musician Sting and his wife Trudie Styler. Named after the song by Sting/The Police, this Tuscan white is 100% Vermentino. It pours a brilliant straw-yellow colour, enriched with greenish hues that foreshadow its freshness and vivacity. On the nose, look for citrus notes with hints of banana, pineapple, jasmine and acacia. On the palate, expect garden-fresh, crisp tropical fruit, balanced acidity, and a medium body. Try if you like Sauvignon Blanc!

The Il Palagio estate has been farmed on since the 16th Century! When Sting and Trudie first came across the estate in 1999, it had fallen into a state of disrepair. They restored the estate, and assembled a team to maximise the natural qualities of the estate, now operating on a fully biodynamic basis. Grape varieties cultivated here include the classic Tuscan red grapes Sangiovese, Canaiolo & Colorino as well as the more internationally renowned Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot. 

Ideal as an aperitif, Vermentino "Message in a Bottle" pairs well with fish dishes, seafood, and light appetizers. It is also an excellent companion for vegetarian dishes and fresh salads, where its aromatic profile can truly shine.
