Winemaker's Notes

The Vernaccia has a pale straw colour which becomes more golden as the wine ages. This kind of wine can be promoted to a "Riserva" after one year of ageing. It has a refined but penetrating bouquet, a fresh harmonious flavour with a slight aftertaste of bitter almonds, and a good structure and fullness. Excellent with special fish dishes, this full-bodied wine also goes well with cold and hot meats. It should be drunk young, at a temperature of between 12 and 14 °C.
