Fontaleoni Vernaccia Di San Gimignano 2021 (Tuscany, Italy)
Producer Notes: Fontaleoni is a small estate whose vineyards are located at 200 meters above sea level, the ideal altitude for growing the Vernaccia varietal. Low yields of grapes, careful harvest and pressing of this fragile grape, along with conscientious winemaking, have produced Vernaccia wines that continue to grow in quality and fame. Fontaleoni’s Vernaccia di San Gimignano is a lively dry white wine.
WHAT IS VERNACCIA?
A white-wine grape grown in Italy's Tuscany region, primarily southwest of Florence around the medieval hilltop town of San Gimignano. Vernaccia di San Gimignano dates back as far as the thirteenth century, and its origins are thought to be Greek. The wines produced from this variety vary tremendously. Traditionally made, they're golden in color, rich and full bodied, with an oxidized style and a slightly bitter edge to the flavor. More modern wine-making techniques produce paler-colored wines with crisper, lighter characteristics. - The New Wine Lovers Companion
