    "Gentilesca" Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG 2020
  • Gentilesca is a Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG, offered by Abbazia Monte Oliveto. A Tuscan wine of great character and pleasantness, it is one of the very few Tuscan white wines that can hold its own against the region's great reds. It is made from pure Vernaccia grapes from vineyards at the foot of the historic Abbey of Monte Oliveto, erected in 1340, which faces the city of a hundred towers. The must, obtained from grapes harvested by hand and subjected to soft crushing, is fermented partly in barriques and partly in stainless steel. Maturation lasts 6 months, again partly in steel vats and partly in barriques. Intense straw yellow in colour, on the nose it is surprising for its clear scents of yellow-fleshed peaches, ripe and sweet almonds, chamomile, honey and slightly wilted white flowers. In the mouth it is creamy, with an intense savoury note. The finish is soft and persistent. Ideal with light first courses with tomato sauce. White meats and porchetta.

    Write Zonin and read wine. A wine family. One of the best known in the world. After all, we are talking about a history spanning almost two centuries. A history made up of passion for wine and for the vine, for no less than seven generations. We are located in the hills of Gambellara. From these hills, the Zonin family has built - step by step - a global brand. And it is here that the Zonin family still produces the still and sparkling DOC and DOCG wines that make up the range. Over the years, then, the family has acquired control over numerous wineries, scattered in different regions of Italy, from Tuscany to Sicily, and further afield, even overseas.
