Wine:

The 2021 white Vernaccia Di San Gimignano Tradizionale steers clear of technical complexity, instead weaving subtle and intricate aromas. With a nose of gentian, linden, and honey, it captures a root-like essence while maintaining a carefully controlled slight oxidation. The palate continues this refined theme with a vibrant, concentrated start, followed by a superb mineral structure, great freshness, and delicate bitterness.
