(6/2015) Fresh scents of citrus, pear, mineral and sweet pea. Very clean on the palate with a long, lemon-filled flavor and a mouth-watering finish that lasts for minutes
The wine looks yellow gold colored. The legs are fast. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like lemon, pear and mineral.

Bel giallo paglierino carico.
Naso prima molto floreale, poi si fanno largo accenni d'erba tagliata e zenzero, pesca a pasta bianca, sensazioni di frutta esotica (ananas) e di polline dolce, infine dominano persistenti ed interessanti note di talco e di bucato.
Bocca fresca, ampia, ariosa, saporoso, minerale, davvero ottima. Finale molto lungo di pesca croccante.
Gran bel vino, fine ed elegante. Prezzo corretto (12,5 euro)

Rather golden for such a young wine. Fresh, clean nose with more cream and honey than one might expect from Vernaccia di San Gimignano. These flavors carriy thru into the taste. All in all, a well made wine indicative of the area and certainly a very good value for the $12 I paid.

Kind of what we expect from a Vernaccia. It is a little oxidized and not all that expressive. Deep golden color. The nose is shy and non distinct. The taste on the palate is dry and gritty peach skin and apricot pit. Medium bodied. Unusually non acidic for an Italian wine. Some time in the glass and swirling helps bring some life to the flavors and aromas. By the finish some earthy, leafy orange rind flavors accompany the unripe peach and mild citrus flavors.

Solid non-spectacular chianti. Should have bought more for the price.

Deep yellow. Not much happening aromatically. Medium weight and mouth feel, flavors of citrus, mint, and nuts. Unexciting with an oxidative note that I don't like.

Clear light gold. Floral, grassy kiwi fruit nose. Delicious Italian flavours and a medium dry finish. Interesting.

Nose of sweet orange zest, clover, and pine trees when the sap begins to run. Lemon verbena, bees wax on the palate. Mint, slight bit of iodine on the finish. Quite nice, and an excellent value for $11.

Straw yellow; Pellegrino, lime and lemon water, minerals, crisp, classic white Italian; soft sweet green fruit, light lemon, softer acids, light herbs, salty finish; very tasty.

Nice balance of cherry/cedar flavor and long leathery finish. Very nice chianti for pairing with food or just drinking alone.

Well, for $9.99 its a bargain. Mineral, sour cherries, tight but with the gumption to go for a while. Good stuff here.

Salt and sand come to mind for some reason. Fairly creamy throughout the mid palate, but also being served on day two and warm.

Straight ahead red in the glass, not dense but with substance. Fresh shades of cherry/red berries in nose and palate. Some tannin for a base, and very well adjusted acid undertone, with a good finish. Drank over three days, and was best on the second day--very good QPR. Planning to buy some more.

Dull grayish straw color; nose of melon rind, quince, and a tang that continues onto the palate reminiscent of lemon water, grainy minerality. Simple.

Very pale colored. Light and crisp with lemony citrus notes and a little saline. Refreshing. This would make a nice summer sipper on the patio on a hot day.

Interesting wine (my first vernacchia) and a great value at $11. Overall well balanced, with lemon/lime fruit up front combined with some nice acidity and minerality and a chalky/yeasty quality on the finish that reminded us a bit of champagne. Paired really well with homemade pesto pasta and Italian sausage with Pecorino. A good food wine, but probably not as much for sipping without food. Definitely worth a try!!!
