San Gimignano, ITALY

San Gimignano, ITALY


Vernaccia di San Gimignano is a Central Tuscan white, and was the first Italian wine to receive DOC recognition in 1966, doubtless in large part because during the Renaissance it was considered Italy's finest white wine, fit to fire the imaginations of poets, artists and Popes. 

 

Today the best is a golden-hued wine that both warms and inspires, with a rich, heady bouquet, and a crisp clean taste that lingers long on the palate. As Montenidoli's Elisabetta Fagiuoli observes, "it is really a red wine made from white grapes."

In terms of reds, San Gimignano falls within the Chianti Colli Senesi zone, and is also home to the more recently established San Gimignano DOC, a catchall appellation whose wines can be made from a wide variety of red grapes.
