Vernaccia "Fiore," Montenidoli - 2021

Item # 48454 750mL

This Vernaccia from the hilltop town of San Gimignano has notes of ripe lemons and melon, while remaining dry on the finish. This wine is very fresh and is great as an apéritif or with lighter fare. The "Fiore" bottling from Montenidoli is made from the free-run juice and therefore is a more elegant style.

Staff Pick Notes

Since 1971, Elizabetta Fagiuoli has been making acclaimed wines and olive oils on the Montenidoli estate in San Gimignano, Tuscany. From day one, she’s farmed organically, fertilizing the soil with the droppings of her own herd of rabbits and compost from her own crops. The lower half of the estate (200-400m elevation) is blessed with sandy, calcareous soils and studded with ancient oyster shells. Inspired by an uncle who brought her whites from Burgundy, Elizabetta recognized the potential for Vernaccia vines. Here’s a wine that offers many layers of flavors, sensations, and textures. I call this a "yes" wine. Looking for fruit? Citrus? Stone fruit? Tropical? You got it. Herbs? Yes. Minerality? Richness? Salinity? Lively acidity? Ageability? Yes, yes, yes! Yes! YES!

Glossary

Tuscany

When you think of Tuscan wine, think of Sangiovese, the grape that is common to most great Tuscan reds (Vernaccia is the only white wine made here).
