Vernaccia di San Gimignano, Montenidoli “Fiore” 2021
Elisabetta Fagiuoli is a living legend of Tuscan winemaking. Her first vintage was 1971, and she still makes the Montenidoli wines today! Her estate has been organically farmed since before she took over in 1965. While initially devoted to red wines only, she realized the potential for white grapes and began producing white wines in 1984.
Vernaccia di San Gimignano is the lone Tuscan DOCG for white wines, and it’s easy to understand why when tasting Elisabetta’s Carato. She describes Vernaccia as a white grape in a red grape’s body, and as such incorporates skin contact to some degree in all her white wines.
