FALCHINI VINEYARDS 2012 FALCHINI VERNACCIA DI SAN GIMIGNANO "The 2011 Vernaccia di San Gimignano Vigna a Solatio impresses for its length and balance.

Best of all, the Vigna a Solatio is an excellent value."Antonio Galloni-Wine Advocate 86 Points Anticipated maturity: 2012-2013. (2011 vintage)
Wine maker notes
This white wine is a classic product from the Solatio Vineyard at Casale in San Gimignano. It is entirely vinified from 100% Vernaccia grapes. It is pleasantly fresh with a hint of green apple. It adapts wonderfully to any type of cuisine. This wine has great elegance and structure, with a pleasant mineral presence.

Technical notes
This single vineyard wine is sourced from the highest parcel on the property the south/southwest facing Solatio vineyard at Casale in San Gimignano.

Producer
When Riccardo Falchini bought Casale-Falchini in 1964, he was simply following in his family’s footsteps his predecessors had made wine for Cosimo de’ Medici. The estate is located just outside the walled city of San Gimignano in Tuscany and is blessed with superior terroir. The soils are composed of sandy yellow clay and Pliocene fossils. The lime from these fossils acts as nourishment and also helps retain water. In 1976, when Riccardo built a new winery, he was amongst the first to use cold processing and state-of-theart, temperature control equipment for fermentation. Today, Falchini remains a leading producer of the region’s best known wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, which comprises 60% of the estate’s production. After Riccardo’s death in 2010, his sons Michael and Christopher along with consulting enologist Giacomo Tachis (the winemaker behind Tignanello, Sassicaia, Ornellaia and Solaia) continue to enhance the Falchini reputation for fine wines.
