"Borgo alla Terra" Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG 2021 - Geografico

If "Quelli del Geografico" have built their popularity on Sangiovese, and Chianti in particular, with the passing of the years and the entry of new member producers, production has grown and gradually diversified. And today it also includes wines, like the Borgo alla Terra proposed here, that belong to other Tuscan appellations. In this case, in particular, it is an interesting Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG, produced from grapes that are destemmed and softly crushed. Fermentation of the first-pressing must at controlled temperature in steel tanks, to obtain a wine of great pleasantness and immediacy. Pale golden yellow in colour, it has a fine, elegant, intense and persistent bouquet. It is clearly reminiscent of broom, flint and even saffron. The mouthfeel, however, is fresh, fruity and has a good structure. Perfect as a glass to start the evening, it is a wine that will not struggle to find its place on the table, especially if lunch or dinner includes delicate dishes, such as vegetable pies or pasta dishes with fish.

Chianti Geografico is a beautiful story of passion and attachment to its territory. A cooperative born thanks to the initiative of 17 far-sighted winemakers, "Quelli del Geografico", who back in 1961 understood the importance of the extraordinary relationship between a wine and its production territory. From those initial seventeen, today it has reached as many as sixty. The numbers have grown but the passion for their origins and for the prince of the region's grape varieties, Sangiovese, which continues to be the absolute protagonist in the cellar, has not changed. Today, Chianti Geografico is part of the Piccini group, which bought it so as not to risk losing the memory of that group of good winemakers.
