Description: Vernaccia di San Gimignano stands out among the top wines of Tuscany, being the region's only white wine to have reached the lofty heights of DOCG status. Since the Renaissance it has been considered one of Italy's finest white wines. Its fame has no doubt been strongly connected to its region of origin, San Gimignano – an ancient Tuscan town famed for its medieval towers. It’s recognized for its golden-hued color, powerful and full-bodied nature, heady floral bouquet, dry, crisp and persistent flavors and high levels of acidity. It also reflects its terroir, offering mineral characteristics of stone (particularly flint) from the sandstone soils where the grapes are grown.
Food Pairing: Chicken, vegetable, charcuterie, soft cheeses, etc.
