Following the San Gimignano “full immersion” with the occasion of Tuscany Anteprima, the Wine Chef presented the tasting of Vernaccia 2018 and a handful of selected Vernaccia Riserva, among which the Vernaccia Panizzi Riserva 2013:

An excellent example of an oak-aged Vernaccia, dry and refreshing, with notes of apples, lemon and orange showing a touch of salinity and mineral character, finishing with bitter almonds and hazelnut. “These wines are the children of the mother nature surrounding us,” says Simone Niccolai, owner of Panizzi winery, who believes that, if treated correctly, “Vernaccia grapes can make one of the great white wines of the world.”
