BEN 2023 Vermentino


BEN 2023 Vermentino

BEN stands for the Italian first name Beniamino, often given to the youngest and most beloved son. This is exactly the case with BEN from Nittardi: since 2012, it has been our first Maremma white wine, which we have been dreaming of for a long time.

BEN is made from 100% Vermentino, an indigenous Italian grape variety that has spread along the entire Mediterranean coast. BEN has found an ideal microclimate in the southern Maremma, not far from the Tyrrhenian coast, which gives it refreshingly fine salty notes.
