Location :San Gimignano - Siena - Tuscany

Name :D.O.C.G. Vernaccia di San Gimignano Riserva

Grapes :100% Vernaccia di San Gimignano

Alcohol :13,5 % Vol.

Vinification :Soft pressing, alcohol fermentation, aged and refined on first lees (yeasts) in barriques (wood barrels) for 12 months.

Tasting Notes :Pale yellow, bright and obvious slightly green nuances tending towards antique gold, with an expansive bouquet that is aristocratic, with a highly varied but harmonious mix of flowers including broom, walnut shell, grapefruit and melon with a pleasant hint of vanilla. To the palate it is powerful, concentrated and perfectly balanced, enlivened by a decidedly acidic backbone. The aromas are long-lasting, rich and complex, with a return of ripe fruit at the finish.
