Vernaccia di San Gimignano

12,00

The Vernaccia from San Gimignano is an antique Tuscan grape of noble origins and tied closely to the antique city of San Gimignano. It is one of the most famous typical Tuscan wines, along with Chianti Classico and Chianti Riserva. The wine is a true expression of this particular territory of Tuscany, and cannot be duplicated elsewhere, since the climate and the soil governs this particular grape’s production.
