Panizzi Vernaccia Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The beautiful high-rise medieval town of San Gimignano must be one of the most beautiful in Tuscany, but in wine terms is something of a backwater. The annual arrival of hundreds of thousands of thirsty tourists has meant that the regions winemakers have had to care little about the quality of their product. Giovanni Panizzi, Milanese by birth, has however taken a different tack. A true Milanese gentlemen with a love of wine and country life, he visited San Gimignano a few years ago and was so struck by its overwhelming beauty and delightful countryside that he decide to pack his bags and move in. His wines help to give the City of Towers its excellent reputation on the international oenological stage. A natural talent for wine making combined with a minute attention to detail have resulted in these excellent wines which he produces from a mere 20 hectares in Santa Margherita. This Vernaccia wine has a light straw yellow colour with a greenish glow. There is a complex, rich delicate bouquet, initially reminiscent of Broom and lime, then suggesting a sensation of mixed fruity flavours of green apples, pears and pineapple. This is a well balanced, dry and fragrant wine that stresses its fruity flavour with a pleasantly persisting, slightly bitter aftertaste. Try it with pistachio-crusted pork with plum sauce and fried leeks, boiled lobsters with tarragon butter or pasta with caramelised onions, cabbage, and smoked ham.

Leuchtendes Strohgelb mit grünlichen Nuancen, zu goldgelb tendierendweit. Edel, sehr vielschichtig in einer harmonischen Mischung von Ginsterblüten, Pampelmuse und Melone mit einem angenehmen Vanilleton. Kraftvoller Wein, konzentriert, herrlich ausgewogen, zusammengehalten durch die feste Kraft der Säure. Er bietet lang anhaltende Aromen, reichhaltige Komplexität und endet im Finale mit Noten nach reifen Früchten.
