From 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.
The wines from
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.
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.
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.
