Yellow straw color. Aromas of pineapple, pear, and underripe muskmelon with a satiny, vibrant, dryish light body and a seamless, appealing, medium-length slate, alpine herbs, and sea spray finish with no oak flavor. A balanced, mineral-forward Vernaccia that will be a great aperitif or shellfish pairing.

Serve in a White Wine Glass
Vernaccia di San Gimignano is Tuscany's premier indigenous white wine and its only white DOCG. From the ancient village of San Gimignano and made from the Vernaccia grape (hence the composition of the name), these wines are bright and citrusy with a slightly bitter finish.
