A fresh and savory white made with Vernaccia. Aromas of flowers and fresh fruit with a slight salinity on the palate.

Location: San Gimignano, Tuscany
Alcohol: 12.5%

Beautiful pale straw yellow in color, the nose is pleasant with fragrant notes of flowers and fresh fruit. On the palate it is savory, brackish, fresh and very flowing.

Wine sees 1 day of skin contact while fermenting in stainless steel with native yeast. The wine ages in stainless steel 12 months with no interventions and is bottled unfined and unfiltered.

The vineyard is 5 hectares at 400 meters in altitude with an average vine age of 40 years, with some as old as 70 years. These mature vines along with clay soil rich with fossils provide a complexity to the wines that allows them to age tremendously. Alessandro believes in biodiversity and also grows barley and oats on the property for their horses. The vineyard has been certified organic since 2003.
