Description

The more beautiful the bunch of grapes the more beautiful the wine

Grown in hillside vineyards surrounding the Tuscan town of San Gimignano, this wine is made entirely from Vernaccia grapes. The grapes are chilled immediately following harvest and vinified at low temperatures in cement vats so that the final wine exudes a fresh, lively character. Since the 2004 vintage, this wine has been made from USDA-certified organically grown grapes. In a region of reds, this classically spicy Vernaccia wine shows a different side of Tuscany.

Tasting Notes:

Straw yellow in color, gentle floral and citrus aromas complement undertones of stone fruits and fresh herbs. This wine has flavors of lemon zest, sage, and minerality with hints of anise and almonds on the crisp finish.

Food Pairing:

Pair this crisp, unoaked white with insalata di mare, salmoriglio, calamari grigliati, and chicken scallopini.
