Vernaccia di San Gimignano Riserva 'Vigna ai Sassi', Le Calcinaie

90% Vernaccia (planted 1987) with 10% Chardonnay (planted 1990), sourced from eastern-facing sandy Pliocene soils of the one-hectare Ai Sassi cru.  At the end of August Chardonnay grapes are harvested. Pressing and fermentation of the must after static decanting. After approx. three weeks Vernaccia grapes are harvested: destemming, crushing and maceration with the skins for a few hours.
