Vernaccia di San Gimignano


I don’t have too much experience with #vernaccia but the sommelier told me that this was typical of the grape and the region #sangimignano it has lees contact. On the nose I noticed grass, lemon, yoghurt and vainilla and honey. On the palate it was refreshing with medium acidity and a medium body and finish. Either I was just really thirsty or it is a thirst quencher. Either way, it went down well. — a year ago

Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2013

An Italian night with another Total Wine holiday purchase. The Vernaccia grape is a classic Italian white grape that, while it's popularity has waned, has seen a resurgence in drinkability lately. Vernaccia grown in San Gimignano, situated on lush hillside in Tuscany, was the first Italian wine to receive DOC status and eventually DOCG in 1993. The Vernaccia wine is typically dry, acidic, and slightly bitter. ~$15 | #totalwine #vernaccia #italianwhitewine

On the eyes: Light translucent straw yellow, starbright, no stain, light legs.

On the nose: Meyer lemon rind with hints of hay and bitter root vegetable. Med- alcohol.

On the tongue: Med acid, med- tannin, med- alcohol. Unripe lemon wrapped in a light herbaceous blanket with hints of oak yielding to a slightly bitter mineralty. Low complexity but the price point makes it worth it.

Дуб, абрикос, выпечка, много дуба. Чисто, но характер сорта закрыт.

Non mi ha entusiasmato! Un buon vino non c'è che dire ma forse era troppo freddo per poterlo apprezzare pienamente. #fumawine #vernaccia #sangiminiano #montenidoli #vqprd #whitewine #italianwine #vinobianco — 4 years ago
