2018 Vernaccia Di San Gimignano Mormoraia
|Sub-district||Vernaccia Di San Gimignano|
This is super value from San Gimignano. The name Suavis means 'succulent and tasty' - and it is very aptly named! Entirely organically cultivated Vernaccia, it is chock-full of pithy pear, citrus and almond flowers. Notes of firm white fruit flesh, and a satisfying weight all kept on track, flowing nicely with just a zip of acidity. L&S (Aug 2018)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Floral notes, stones and a touch of something tropical. Grapefruit-pith bitterness adds a layer to the palate, with brisk acidity. Touch of finish warmth and not the world's longest, but good distinctiveness. GV Rating: 15.5 Tim Jackson MW, www.jancisrobinson.com(Apr 2020)
Colour: Straw yellow Perfume: Intense and fruity, vivacious with a touch of hawthorn and apple. Flavour: Balanced, harmonic, persistent with a pleasurable acidulous final.Winemaker's notes(Nov 2019)
Alessandro Passoni is the second generation here to run this beautiful estate since his father bought the old convent back in 1980 and started to regenerate the vineyards. The name comes from the property's religious history as a convent, with the murmur of the nuns as they recited their prayers that once emanated from the walls like a 'Mormoraia'. Pino Passoni and his wife Franca passed over the reins to their children in 2012 and the farm has been worked organically since 2013. This is an estate on the move with energy and ever better practices in the vineyards and clever gentle work in the cellar. The results are great and these wines get better and better!
