Vernaccia di San Gimignano Montenidoli Fiore, organic wine, 100% Vernaccia, Tuscany’s signature white grape, nutty full and creamy white great for fish dishes like Baccala. Fiore is made with the free run juice, displaying all the finesse and elegance of which Vernaccia can be capable. It is fermented in steel, and ages on the lees to gain roundness and persistence. Displaying considerable depth,it is full, with rich white berry fruit supported by greenish accents and spice. Fiore also ages very well and drinks beautifully with 5-8 years in the bottle. A glass of Fiore 2003 at Verona’s mythical ‘Antica Bottega del Vino’ was a memorable experience.

Montenidoli, 'the mountain of little nests', 24 hectares of vineyards surrounded by 200 hectares of woodlands.

The Etruscans were the first to discover this treasure and plant vines, then came the Romans and the Knights Templar. Elizabetta and Sergio Faguioli arrived in 1965, heirs to a long farming tradition. The vineyards and olive trees were overgrown and abandoned and needed a great deal of work to bring them back to life. This was done according to organic principles and the first vintage was born in 1971. The wines display a true sense of 'Terroir', which is a complex soil high in calcareous deposits which imparts personality and strong minerality to the flavour. These white wines are subtle and complex and age beautifully to produce rich, golden nectars.
