This white wine is produced from the Solatìo vineyard at Casale in San Gimignano. This sunny-side vineyard, or in Tuscan “Vigna a Solatìo” is the highest elevated vineyard on the property, the first to be replanted in 1968 by Riccardo Falchini. It lies South–South West and receives the most sunlight throughout the year, hence its name. This wine comes entirely from 100% Vernaccia grapes. Vinification is carried out off the skins, after a soft pressing. The fermentation and storage are carried out in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. It is pleasantly fresh with a hint of green apple and delicate white jasmine flowers. It is a wine that adapts wonderfully to any type of cuisine thanks to the rich mineral content of the wine. This wine, with great elegance, a pleasant bouquet and structure, is a classic example of Vernaccia that “kisses, licks, bites and stings”, as described in one of his poems by Michelangelo Buonarroti. The Vernaccia di San Gimignano was the first white wine of Italy to become a DOC in 1966, and again amongst the first white wines to receive the D.O.C.G. recognition in 1993. NB: Vernaccia is the distinctive white grape produced only in the territory of San Gimignano; its origins date back to the pre Medieval times.
