CHARACTERISTICS 

Production Area

Tuscany (San Gimignano)

Varietal

100% Vernaccia di San Gimignano

Wine Making

Cold maceration, settling of the must after destemming & soft crushing. Addition of selected yeasts. Fermentation at a controlled temperature & aging in stainless steel. About 20% of the grapes are fermented in small oak barrels (barriques).

Aging

Aged in bottle at least 6 months.  Drink immediately or keep for 4-5 year to discover the potential of this white grape variety, particularly well-suited to longer aging periods.

Analytical Data

Alcohol 13.5% vol.

Tasting Notes

 

Dense, bright straw yellow color with light greenish hues. Nose is lively & generous with hints of lime blossom blending with white peaches, honey & light hints of vanilla, with finishing touches of citrus notes.  Palate is both generous & stylish, soft & fragrant, progressing dynamically towards a very lingering, fresh finish.

Serving
Recommendations

Serve at 10-12°C., although Vernaccia will also perform perfectly at red wine serving temperature.  A versatile table companion & lively accompaniment for fish & non fish crudités, lightly fried dishes, all kinds of salad.  Also very good with first & second courses, soups, semi aged cheeses & mild flavored meats.
