    Winemaker Notes

    This wine exhibits the spicy characteristics of the grape; the nose is very penetrating. On the palate the wine is crisp, dry and refreshing with a slightly bitter aftertaste and perfect acidity.

    San Quirico, Italy
    When Andrea Vecchione, proprietor of San Quirico, planted his original 26.5 acres of vineyards more than 20 years ago, he was one of few in the area of San Gimignano who took a scientific approach to planting. The results have been so outstanding that his vineyards are now a prime source for select grafting. His vineyards, with their southern and western exposure, have now doubled in size, but in his approach to winemaking, Andrea still has one yardstick: quality. His winery is small but efficient and equipped to produce state-of-the-art wines.

    One of the most iconic Italian regions for wine, scenery and history, Tuscany is the world’s most important outpost for the Sangiovese grape. Ranging in style from fruity and simple to complex and age-worthy, Sangiovese makes up a significant percentage of plantings here, with the white Trebbiano Toscano coming in second.

    Within Tuscany, many esteemed wines have their own respective sub-zones, including Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The climate is Mediterranean and the topography consists mostly of picturesque rolling hills, scattered with vineyards.

    Sangiovese at its simplest produces straightforward pizza-friendly wines with bright and juicy red fruit, but at its best it shows remarkable complexity and ageability. Top-quality Sangiovese-based wines can be expressive of a range of characteristics such as sour cherry, balsamic, dried herbs, leather, fresh earth, dried flowers, anise and tobacco. Brunello expresses well the particularities of vintage variations and is thus popular among collectors. Chianti is associated with tangy and food-friendly dry wines at various price points. A more recent phenomenon as of the 1970s is the “Super Tuscan”—a wine made from international grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah, with or without Sangiovese. These are common in Tuscany’s coastal regions like Bolgheri, Val di Cornia, Carmignano and the island of Elba.

    Vernaccia's intricate history has roots in San Gimignano. The idyllic countryside upon which this vine grows was actually named Italy’s first DOC in 1966. Somm Secret—The 13th century marks its first written record and the grape was celebrated widely in literature, namely poems by Dante and Franseco Redi.
