Italy’s dry, refreshing Vernaccia grape has grown in San Gimignano since the 1200s. Today, it makes some of Tuscany’s most unique and mouthwatering whites – and this fine example comes with a serious pedigree. Boasting 90 points from expert James Suckling, it’s a “juicy and fresh” taste of Tuscany’s excellent 2017 vintage. You could say it’s fit for a king – or rather, a prince.
Prince Girolamo Strozzi, that is. He’s head of one of Italy’s most renowned families, and they’ve been making wines at his gorgeous estate for hundreds of years. And his man in the cellar? None other than Franco Bernabei, an Italian winemaking superstar known for his $100-plus-a-bottle wines – like the Fontodi’s famed Flaccianello. No staggering price point here, though – we’re friends with the prince and Mr. Bernabei – so you enjoy insider, “royal” access without paying the princely sum.
Bursting with creamy citrus fruit – ripe lemons and notes of clementine – with a hint of spicy white pepper, white floral characters and a long, complex finish. Perfect for seafood, tomato-based vegetarian dishes, and more.
