Made from 100% Vernaccia grapes from one of the few crus in San Gimignano, Santa Margherita. The grapes are hand-harvested in whole clusters and softly pressed. Half of the must is fermeneted in stainless steel and the other half in barrique. After 5 to 6 months of refinement post-fermentation, the two wines are blended and bottled. A further 12 months of refinement occurs in bottle before release.

Method & Production
A broad and inviting nose of white fruits, peach and apricot, alongside nettles and white flowers. The palate is round and rich with sweet yellow fruit, melon, tertiary notes, crushed flint stone, and subtle oak influence. There is some weight that is balanced well by the acidity on the finish and the lingering nettle hint makes for a lovely sip.
It pairs well with seafood risotto and pasta, shellfish, white meats, medium and aged cheeses.
