Vernaccia di San Gimignano is an ancient Tuscan white wine that dates back to the 1st century AD.
It was the first to be classified as a DOC in March 1966 and was promoted to DOCG status in 1993. The name `Vernaccia' comes from the original dialect here, meaning simply `white wine'. Stylistically Vernaccia di San Gimignano is light-bodied with a stony, citrus, almost salty character, thanks in part to the sandstone soils surrounding this famous fortified village.
