    La Lastra, San Gimignano, Tuscany, Italy
    Established in 1994, La Lastra, located in San Gimignano, brought together the dedication of a close-knit team: Renato Spanu, the agronomist; Nadia Betti, the coordinator; Enrico Paternoster, the enologist; and Christian Betti, the winemaker. La Lastra consists of six hectare of vineyards divided over four plots on hillsides with southeast-southwest orientation. The soil is of Pliocene origin and is a mix of clay and limestone rich in skeleton and sea sediments, giving La Lastra wines their characteristic minerality and longevity.

    La Lastra is focused exclusively on producing wines that continue the long-standing tradition of native varietals and re ect the rich character of the area. Balance and elegance are hallmarks of the La Lastra line and practices in both the vineyards and the winery are tailored to this end. La Lastra’s red and white wines are recognized for their consistent quality and extensive ability to age with grace.

    Producing some of Tuscany’s best white wines based on its own variety called Vernaccia, San Gimignano is a small appellation to the west of Chianti centered around the romantic village of the same name. Vernaccia produces a fruity and floral white with plenty of verve on the palate and often a fresh note of raw almond.

    Vernaccia's intricate history has roots in San Gimignano, whose main village’s quaint restaurants and steep pedestrian-only cobblestone streets make it as romantic—if not more—as any other Tuscan village. The idyllic countryside upon which this vine grows was actually named Italy’s first DOC in 1966. The 13th century marks its first written record and the grape was celebrated widely in literature, for example in poems by Dante and Franseco Redi.

    Sapid with a mineral persistence, Vernaccia also offers up generous amounts of white peach and melon. It has lovely floral qualities, plenty of verve on the palate and often a fresh note of green almond. Vernaccia goes with so many dishes including cooked or raw fish, puff pastry appetizers and hard-to-pair vegetables like asparagus and artichoke.
