This white wine is produced from the Solatìo vineyard at Casale in San Gimignano, in Tuscany, North West of Siena. The Solatio vineyard, or in Tuscan “Vigna a Solatìo” is the highest elevated vineyard on the property the first to be replanted in 196 by Riccardo Falchini. It faces South–South West and receives the most sunlight throughout the year, hence its name. The wine comes entirely from 100% Vernaccia di San Gimignano grapes. It is pleasantly fresh with a hint of green apple and delicate white flowers. It 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 by the poet Michelangelo Buonarroti Jr. The Vernaccia di San Gimignano was the first white wine of Italy to be recognised with the D.O.C. appellation in 1966, and again amongst the first white wines to receive the D.O.C.G. recognition in 1993.
Produced from the property owned vineyard named Colombaia, this Chianti of the Senese Hills comes from a blend of handpicked Sangiovese grapes and small percentages of other red grapes from the Colombaia estate in San Gimignano. This wine is fermented and stocked in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The maceration period is about 10/15 days long at low temperature with selected yeasts. After a brief passage in small oak barrels, this wine is further on refined in the bottle for a few months. It has a vibrant intense ruby red colour, with hints of red berries and dried red roses; on the palate it is warm, intense, elegant; this wine is the perfect example of a fine Tuscan sangiovese Chianti Colli Senesi. It is served best with typical Tuscan antipasti and tomato based pasta dishes with rich and spiced meat sauces; excellent also with grilled white and red meats, wild game and fresh to medium aged Tuscan cheeses,
Produced from the Casale vineyards in San Gimignano, the “Ab Vinea Doni” (Latin, “a gift from the vineyard”) is made with Vernaccia di San Gimignano (95%) and Chardonnay (5%) grapes. The fermentation and refining are done in 225l. French oak barriques for about 4 and a half months with frequent batonnages. Once bottled, it completes its refining for four more months before leaving the winery. The typical characteristics of Vernaccia di San Gimignano are enhanced by the fermentation in oak barrels, while the small addition of Chardonnay increases the bouquet and roundness of this wine. The Vernaccia di San Gimignano is the historical white grape produced only in the San Gimignano area, whose origins date back to the Early Medieval age.
