Top 8% wine in the UK
Blend: 100% Vernaccia
From: Italy, Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG
By: Fagiuoli family @ Montenidoli
Vernaccia is a rare and indigenous grape variety from Tuscany. Bright yellow straw in colour, a wide nose of wild flowers, flint with honey at the finish. The palate is intense, starting with flowery and herbaceous notes, evolving to saffron and almond. Always balanced with a good level of acidity.
Elisabetta Fagiuoli and Sergio came to Montenidoli (local word meaning “mountain of the little nests”) in 1965. This hilly land has 24 hectares of vineyards surrounded by 200 hectares of woods right in the heart of Tuscany, near San Giminiano. Agricultural land in the past, it was abandoned by the farmers in the early 1900’s due to the two great wars and the rise of industry. Elisabetta and Sergio planted the vines onto the empty always with the aim of keeping the process as natural as possible with little human interaction. This is nature at its best. Organic certified.
