Overview

At Montenidoli we have always considered Vernaccia to be a red wine in white robes. In part because it’s surrounded by great red wines, and in part because, with respect to more northerly whites, its bouquet has more pronounced secondary nuances, and it gains softness from the malolactic fermentation, which guarantees body and longevity.
