Vernaccia di San Gimignano was one of the first areas admitted to the DOC in 1966 and then again to DOCG some years later. One of the best producers we have seen is Fontaleoni. Owned by the Troiani family and today run by the brother and sister team of Matteo and Simona, the vineyards are managed by hand and are currently en route to full conversion to orgnaic certification. The winemaking falls to Matteo with a little help from one of Tuscany's greatest oenologists, Paolo Caciorgna.

The 2016 entry level Vernaccia is everything it should be with a stonefruit and blossom aromatic and a slippery textured palate. Nice accacia mouth aromas complex on the way through to almond clip in the finish. Perfect to drink with anchovies or giardinera or nothing at all. PWS
