No one could ever speak of this estate without mentioning Elisabetta Fagiuoli. She is the soul of the place, an inexhaustible font of energy and creativity. In 1965 she and her partner Sergio came to Montenidoli to create a refuge for troubled youth. In 1971 she produced her first wine, one that caught the imagination of Italy’s greatest critics. To this day she produces the very best Vernaccia di San Gimignano, along with a range of other marvelous wines, not least her rose. She and her dedicated team work all 59 acres of vineyards organically. The vineyards themselves are surrounded by 500 acres of woodland, covering the slopes of a hill opposite the storied towers of San Gimignano. 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. Refinement in steel vats. Wine is aged in bottle before release. Herbal, almond, jasmine, basil, white pepper on the perfume. Rich and dry on the palate with a long mineral aftertaste. Perfect for ideal for olive oil-based Mediterranean dishes. Well suited for all manner of seafood dishes, including raw fish. Pair with vegetable dishes with artichokes and asparagus.
