Area of Production:
The production area is characterised by a Mediterranean climate with rather dry summers, not particularly harsh winters and rainfall concentrated in two periods: April/May and November, with temperatures varying from -5°C to +37°C. The area benefits from good ventilation all year round and only rarely is it cloaked in fog.
The San Gimignano area is very well suited to winegrowing. The main appellation is Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG, flanked by San Gimignano Doc. These two wines are specific to the territory. There are also vineyards for the production of Chianti, Chianti Colli Senesi and IGT Toscana.
Catarratto – Grillo – Inzolia are three white wine varieties commonly blended together in Italy. The blend may also be used to create dry white wines.
Catarratto – a low-acid, relatively flavor-neutral grape – is the most planted grape variety in Sicily, and consequently makes up a high proportion of most Marsala blends. As the annual Catarratto harvest typically exceeds demand, a great deal of Catarratto wine is distilled, providing an obvious source of grape spirit for the fortification of Marsala.
Grillo has much stronger, more-distinctive flavors (predominantly citrus) than Catarratto, and higher potential alcohol, so its role in fortified winemaking is obvious, particularly when a sweeter style is required.
Inzolia, widely regarded as the best-quality variety of the three, contributes its excellent acid structure to the blend, and adds significantly adding to the wines’ longevity.
