Vernaccia di San Gimignano Montenidoli Tradizionale, organic wine, 100% Vernaccia, Tuscany's signature white grape, nutty, mouth tingling white wine, great for sea food. Vernaccia Montenidoli Tradizionale is made in the old fashioned way with a little skin contact to enrich the wine. It is an organic Vernaccia with a deep brassy gold colour with an intriguing bouquet of honeysuckle and butterscotch mingled with minerality and some white pepper. On the palate the wine is minerally with lovely taught acidity and some butterscotch laced warmth. The finish has a crisp gun flint bitterness to it, clean slightly bitter and savoury. Montenidoli dispels the myth that Vernaccia is a dull grape producing neutral wines. With age these natural bottles become very complex and even more interesting.
