The Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG by Teruzziis one of the classics of Tuscany. In the glass it shines straw yellow with delicate greenish reflections, on the nose an intense and sustainable bouquet unfolds with fruity aromas and fine mineral and vegetative hints in the background . On the palate it presents itself decisively, powerful and soft, with fresh acidity, of good structure and balanced taste. Sustainable finish with the typical almond note in the long finish.
Vinification of the Teruzzi Vernaccia di San Gimignano
The Vernaccia di San Gimignano is vinified from the Vernaccia grape variety, documented since the early Middle Ages, which was the first to be awarded THE DOC designation of origin in 1966 and the DOCG in 1993. It grows exclusively on the hills around San Gimignano, the city of a thousand towers, in the heart of Tuscany. The aim of the Teruzzi winery was to make this old indigenous grape variety internationally known again when it was founded.
The grapes are manually selectively harvested and then gently pressed before being fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts
