“VERNACCIA TORRI” Vernaccia di San Gimignano D.o.c.g.
First Italian wine to be classified as DOC in 1966, and since then DOCG thanks to its continually increasing quality. This wine goes back to the time of Dante and Boccaccio. Michelangelo mentions it in his writings and he refers to it as “the wine that tingles, bites and stings”. It has always been a favourite amongst classy gourmets, princes and popes. In The Divine Comedy, Dante immortalizes it as deserving a place in Purgatory, where punishment for gluttons constitutes the absence of eel and Vernaccia! Interestingly enough some experts believe that the Tuscan Vernaccia originated in Liguria, in the Cinque Terre area, at Vernazza. Indeed at close scrutiny, the Vernaccia grape is not that different to the Bosco grape in shape and yielding capacity, although a little less in shape of cluster and colour.
