Tenuta Le Calcinaie Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2017

SKU 8032542652258


A wine obtained from Vernaccia grapes of San Gimignano. After a brief maceration of the grapes, separated from the bunch and crushed, the juice is taken away from the skins, from which it has aquired aroma and sapidity. This process is followed by a static decantation of the must and, finally, fermentation in steel vats at a controlled temperature. An extended period of fermentation enriches the new wine with floral aromas , complexity and intensity, respecting of the tipicity of these grapes.
