Vernaccia di San Gimignano is a grape variety which was first cultivated on the hills of San Gimignano. The D.O.C.G. Vernaccia-based wine from San Gimignano has a long history, and since the Renaissance period has been considered one of Italy’s oldest and most noble wines. Its fame has no doubt been strongly connected to its region of origin, San Gimignano – the ancient Tuscan town famed for its medieval towers.
The Barona di Torciano white offers a straw yellow color with greenish highlights. The nose is delicate and elegant with its notes of bananas, pineapples, white flowers, and candied fruit. The palate is balanced and harmonious with good flavor persistence and mineral notes on the finish and aftertaste. Trebbiano is a name applied to a confusing group of white wine grape varieties originating in Italy. Generally the grape is a high cropper,with high bunch weight and good fertility. It is late budding which mitigates against Spring frosts, but needs plenty of sun to ripen fully, though it adapts to many growing conditions.

Vernaccia food pairing:
If you think about which dishes can be accompanied by Vernaccia, you can see how this wine is suitable for more varied uses. You can drink it with appetizers, but it can also accompany seafood, such as cooked mussels and clams in white, but also with squid, served with vegetables or legumes. Among the first courses, the combination with risotto alla marinara, but also with potato gnocchi, undoubtedly seasoned with a red mullet sauce, is undoubtedly right.
Among second courses, it is a valid pairing with whole baked fish, such as sea bass or snapper, but also crustaceans bind in excellent harmony, thanks to a guess counterpoint of flavors. It is also excellent with crépes, soufflèes and white meat.
