The ancient building Casale, which names the surrounding area, is located just two steps outside the walls of San Gimignano; the property was acquired by Riccardo Falchini in 1964, a descendant from an ancient Florentine family of viticulturist and winemakers, that since 1626 produced wine for Cosimo de' Medici.. Situated 300 meters above sea level, it extends over a landscape of green rolling hills, many hectares of which are of specialized vineyards.
|Wine maker notes
|This white wine is produced from the Vigna a Solatio vineyard at Casale in San Gimignano. The Solatio Vineyard, or in Tuscan 'Vigna a Solatio' is the highest elevated vineyard on the property, one of the first to be replanted in 1976 by Riccardo Falchini. It faces South–South West and receives the most sunlight throughout the year, hence its name.
The wine comes entirely from 100% Vernaccia grapes. It is pleasantly fresh with a hint of green apple and delicate white flowers. It adapts wonderfully to any type of cuisine thanks to the rich mineral content of the wine. This wine with great elegance, a pleasant bouquet and structure is a classic example of Vernaccia.
