Description: Delicate straw yellow tending to a warm golden colour with aging. Characteristic bouquet, elegant and persistent. Dry and harmonious with a slight almond finish. 

Vinification and refinement: In 1966, Vernaccia was the first Italian wine to receive the Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC), a prestigious recognition given to the wine by the Italian government for quality. Later, the wine became a DOCG where the G stands for Garantita, which is one of Italy's highest quality denomination. 
It is produced exclusively in the territory of the Medieval town of San Gimignano, nearby Siena, a major tourist attraction known throughout the world. The medium altitude of the vines is approximately 280 meters and the soil is sandy, clayey and calcareous. The wine-making process in "white" follows the traditional style with a gentle pressing and low temperature in order to keep its exceptional fragrance. The fermentation, at a controlled temperature, has a medium duration of 12 to 18 days in either cement or steel vats. 

Food pairings: Excellent aperitif, it is delicious with fish, shellfish and vegetables. Serve at 10°C
