The Traditional Wines of Montenidoli

{short description of image}

Versando una cassetta d'uvaFrom the free-run must of the Trebbiano Gentile and Malvasia Bianca grapes we obtain Vinbrusco, the traditional white wine of San Gimignano's farmers. From all of Montenidoli's white grapes, including Vernaccia, we make Il Templare, whose highlights bring to mind the white wines of old, made by the Knights Templar on these very lands. In the various Canaiolo clones, which modern enology often finds "too light" and discards, we find the perfect fruit for our Canaiuolo Rosé. ... Move forward...

And become must!The wines from Tradition:

  • CANAIUOLO:
    From red-stemmed Canaiolo grapes that have the aromas of white grapes and the richness of reds. It is free-run must that ferments slowly, and is bottled as soon as the sugars are gone, to preserve its freshness.
  • VINBRUSCO:
    This is from the must of the Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes present in the Chianti vineyards. It's the traditional white wine of San Gimignano's farmers, and ferments in steel, aging on its lees to acquire body and softness.
  • TEMPLARE:
    From Vernaccia, Trebbiano, and Malvasia Bianca grapes. In other words, all the white grapes found in the old vineyards. Fermented in wood, they yielded the wine used for the Holy Mass by the Knights Templar who resided at Montenidoli long ago.
