Montenidoli Tradizionale, Vernaccia di San Gimignano
Vernaccia di San Gimignano, Tuscany, Italy 2018 / $25 (Elizabetta Fagiuoli – 80+yrs old)
Following local tradition, the must macerates long on the skins, and is pressed just before the fermentation begins, to capture the character and the flavors of the land. Pale yellow, tending towards gold, with hay and almonds on the nose, and rich on the palate, with a firm dry finish. An exceptional Tuscan white produced by a female winemaker.
