Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG Selva Bianca Colombaio di Santa Chiara, Tasting notes:

Straw yellow colour with reflections that turn to green. The nose is clean with aromas of white fruit, apple, lime, lily of the valley and lemon thyme. On the palate it is taut, vibrant and fresh, characterised by an incisive sapidity. Long and decisive on the finish.

Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG Selva Bianca

Soft pressing of whole grapes. Fermentation at controlled temperature in cement and stainless steel vats on the noble dregs until the beginning of March.

Vernaccia di San Gimignano

White wine from San gimignano, the Vernaccia grape is the most important DOCG of a Tuscan white wine.

A great white wine, from a single vineyard where the characteristics of the local grape par excellence, Vernaccia, emerge clearly and distinctly. Although pleasant when young, it often surprises for its ability to age, evolving notes, both olfactory and tasting, complex and mineral. It is not by chance that it is one of the very few white wines produced also in the reserved type. This Vernaccia di San Gimignano wine enhances many gastronomic combinations. Find its natural place in the Mediterranean cuisine in which extra virgin olive oil dominates. Excellent with pasta dishes with white sauces, rice salads, and pasta salads. Surprising is with the ribollita and all its variants that are found in Tuscany. Extraordinary with fish dishes prepared in any way: baked, fried, grilled or baked, as well as raw fish. Magnificent with various fries and eggs. Amazing with white meat prepared with sauces, and without. Excellent with vegetables of all seasons, and their preparations. Exquisite with fresh and medium-aged cheeses, which enhances the flavor.

COLOMBAIO DI SANTA CHIARA

Colombaio di Santa Chiara turned to viticulture in 2002, when on the initiative of Alessio, the youngest of the three brothers, he decided to become part of the wonderful and complex world of wine. Alessio had started studying enology and the passion had involved him so much that he wanted to put his studies to good use.
