Lunae, Colli di Luni DOC (Liguria/Tuscany, Italy) Vermentino “Black Label” 2020

($40, Montcalm Wine Importers):  There us Vermentino, then there is Lunae Black Label Vermentino.  I’ve always loved this wine and the 2020 is no exception.  It has everything: richness, a saline-infused minerality, and extraordinary freshness.  It has a seemingly never ending finish.  Forty bucks is a big ask for Vermentino, but this is no ordinary Vermentino.  This is a wine to savor.
