MONTENIDOLI'S WINES


VERNACCIA

HISTORIC WINES

REDS

NEW WINES

VERNACCIA

At Montenidoli Vernaccia has always been considered the red of white wines, because of its body, the climate from which it springs, and its ageworthiness. Its secondary aromas, which develop with time, are one of its strong points.

TRADIZIONALE Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG
Vernaccia Tradizionale Blend: 100% Vernaccia

Fermentation:Following local tradition, the must macerates long on the skins, and is pressed just before the fermentation begins, to capture the character and the flavors of the land.

Pale yellow, tending towards gold, with hay and almonds on the nose, and rich on the palate, with a firm dry finish.

Food-Wine Pairings: Perfect for ideal for olive oil-based Mediterranean dishes. Well suited for all manner of seafood dishes, including raw fish, and is perfect with sushi. For vegetable based dishes year round, including the tannins of artichokes or asparagus, and the iron of spinach and liver.
FIORE Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG
Vernaccia Fiore Blend: 100% Vernaccia

Fermentation: The free-run must, which expresses the terrific elegance and finesse of the varietal. The must flows naturally from the grapes that break because of the pressure of those above them in the press. It ferments in steel and ages long on the lees to gain roundness and persistence.

Food-Wine Pairings: The most elegant expression of Vernaccia di San Gimignano. Well suited to delicate dishes with cream sauces, steamed fish, and delicate fish such as sole, whiting, or brook trout. Perfect with fish mousse or soufflé, and white meats including chicken breast, turkey breast, or milk-fed veal.
CARATO Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG
Vernaccia di Carato Blend: 100% Vernaccia

Fermentation: The free-run must from the best vineyards, which ferments in barrels and ages on the lees for 12 months. Wood contributes to the complexity of the secondary aromas, developing, over time, a richness of flavor and taste that brings to mind citrus and honey.

Food-Wine Pairings: Perfect with cheeses or richer dishes. It is also ideal for the evening, refreshing the palate after the fuller reds of an important meal.

SERGIO IL PATRIARCA ONLUS NON-PROFIT FOUNDATION

Sergio the Patriarch Foundation

THE EARTH GIVING, SHARING
A HUMANITARIAN EXPERIENCE

The earth that puts people, creeds, races together.
An attempt to bring nearer different cultures and dogmatisms in order to go beyond, towards a more free and clear vision of brotherhood. To cultivate the earth is first of all non-violence and the capacity to listen to her message through the plants and the animals, saved from any chemical poison. Our way of looking at the Foundation is simple and direct as has always been the life of peasants.
