This white D.O.C.G. wine has its origins in the careful and exclusive selection of Vernaccia variety grapes, grown on hillsides in the administrative area of San Gimignano. It is an unladen straw-yellow colour with a light gold reflection. It has a characteristic aroma that is strong with a hint of meadow flowers, and a dry, well-balanced taste with a bitterish aftertaste.

The producer

Casa alle Vacche is a rural company situated in Lucignano (Pancole) in the administrative area of San Gimignano, an area particularly given to the cultivation of grapevines. The twenty five hectares of vines are lovingly cared for by the Ciappi family and high quality fruit are gathered from an area that is fortunately blessed with good soil and an excellent southerly exposure. The grapes are converted into wine with such skill as to merit the distinction D.O.C.G., as does this Vernaccia di San Gimignano.

How to serve it

The wine should be served at 12 degrees centigrade in clear, transparent crystal goblets.

How to keep
