    • "Santa Chiara" Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG 2017

      “Santa Chiara” Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG 2017

      Santa Chiara is a fruity Vernaccia, the result of a rigorous grape selection and careful ageing. It exalts pleasant fruity and floral aromas with a fresh, delicate vanilla note. On the palate full-bodied, yet elegant and beautifully round. A white wine full of harmony, to which one can confidently give some time in the cellar. SUPERIORE.DE

    About the winemakers
    Niccolai | Palagetto
    Tuscany | Chianti
    Niccolai | Palagetto

    When he decided to found a winery, Luano Niccolai was a successful entrepreneur of rural origin. From this farm came Tenute Niccolai, spread over three production areas: Montalcino, San Gimignano and Motecucco. The heart of the small kingdom is and remains the Palagetto winery, a winery that was built in the early days in the middle of the impressive hilly landscape of San Gimignano. Although the property is located in the Chianti region, it is not possible to reach it without the "Chianti Colli Senesi" and the "Chianti Colli Senesi Riserva" only two plants pressed with this label.

    Today, Luano's daughter Sabrina and her husband Mario take care of the rural property parallel to the agriturismo business they have set up. They not only produce excellent wines, but have also set up an olive mill on the estate, where they process the fruits of their own groves into virgin olive oil. While Sabrina does the business, Mario takes care of the vineyard and the modern winery. He is advised by Gianfrancesco Paoletti and sometimes also by his former teacher Giacomo Tachis on oenological questions.

    The vineyards used by Tenute Niccolai cover a total area of more than 100 hectares. The Palagetto estate alone accounts for 44 hectares. At altitudes between 280 and 320 metres above sea level, the core farms of Vernaccia di San Gimignano, Sangiovese, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Vermentino are cultivated. Numerous products from the Tenuta Palagetto range - including Vernaccia di San Gimignano, for example - regularly receive high ratings from wine critics. SUPERIORE.DE
