Formerly known as cowboy country, the Tuscan region of Maremma produces wines as equally adventurous and thrilling as its past. The warmth of the region can be tasted in the notes of perfectly ripe peaches, but Maremma’s proximity to the ocean reveals itself in the zippy acidity and tang with a slight hint of salt. Wild herbs such as basil and thyme roam throughout the glass. This Vermentino works throughout an entire meal, from a tomato-rubbed bruschetta enlivened with olive oil to a rich fish stew laden with fennel and garlic.
