San Gimignano, “Le Mandorle” vineyard
Vernaccia of San Gimignano grapes, handpicked from the oldest vineyards at the farm called “Le Mandorle”. The name comes from the origin of the field that in the past was full of almond trees. Facing North.
The harvested grapes are divested (cleaned) of their stalks and undergo cryo-maceration for 72 hours. Subsequently, they are gently pressed. Alcoholic fermentation and aging in French oak barrels for 12 months. Finally the lees are stirred weekly with final micro-oxygenation.
