Wine Description

(2014 Vintage) Grown in hillside vineyards surrounding the Tuscan town of San Gimignano, this wine is made entirely from Vernaccia grapes. The grapes are chilled immediately following harvest and vinified at low temperatures in cement vats so that the final wine exudes a fresh, lively character. Since the 2004 vintage, this wine has been made from USDA-certified organically grown grapes. In a region of reds, this classically spicy Vernaccia wine shows a different side of Tuscany.
