Querceto Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2020

Tuscany, ItalyVernaccia di San Gimignano was the first Italian wine to be awarded Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) status in 1966, and was then elevated to DOCG in 1993. This Greve in Chianti estate was taken over by the current family at the beginning of the 20th century. Today the winery owns around 200 hectares of land, of which 60 are vineyards, 6 are olive groves, and the rest are chestnut groves and oak woods. This is 85% vernaccia, along with other local white grapes sourced from the hillsides of San Gimignano, and aged in stainless. Pouring a deeper yellow hue, this waxen white draws quince, pear, melon, and almond along the palate, with lime pith lingering on the finish. Body and freshness, this Tuscan white well suits charcuterie / cheese platters. Great value.Tasted: 01 September 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
