It is a fresh and delicate wine with an indisputably sweet character. Its complex notes open with cheerful aromatic bouquets of white flowers, such as the pear and honeysuckle flowers, decidedly exciting, strengthened by a flowery accord of violet and to complete with a complete taste of citrus aromas and a slight hint of almond that persists in the mouth with panache.
Straw yellow color tending to golden with age. Fine, penetrating, fresh, fruity bouquet and a delicate, fruity flavour with a characteristic bitterish aftertaste.
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.
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.
