Vistamare means sea view and it's a phrase most often used by Mediterranean hoteliers to entice would-be guests, even though their rooms may only offer a limited view of the sea. Gaja’s use of the term is all the more playful, then, given that its vineyards enjoy panoramic views of the Tuscan coast - you can really get a sense that the grapes that go into this have been kissed by the salt air. There's a real dose of salinity on the nose, along with hints of Tuscan lemon groves. On the palate it's powerful, concentrated, spicy and tropical and could stand up to richer chicken and seafood dishes with ease.
