Vernaccia di San Gimignano
In the shadow of San Gimignano’s 14 medieval towers, the most famous white wine of the Tuscan region was born. Vernaccia holds a prominent position on Tuscany’s wine scene, the fruit of a tradition that goes back at least to the mid-13th century. A wine that was enjoyed by both popes and princes, through the centuries Vernaccia managed to marry its top-shelf quality with the unmatched landscape of the San Gimignano area.
The current-day Vernaccia, particularly after the DOCG designation was granted (it was the first white wine to earn this honor in 1993), has undergone continuous evolution in both the vineyard and the cellar. These days when you enjoy a glass of this wine, you’re tasting Tuscany in all its bursting flavor.
