Silvio Messana VdT "Garnaccia" (Vernaccia)

2019
Italy
Tuscany

100% Vernaccia. From organically farmed vines in San Gimignano on sandy clay and gravel soils. The fruit is hand-harvested and partly destemmed and foot-trodden in vat, where it ferments spontaneously without suflur and with about 10 days of maceration. The wine is aged for 8 months in concrete tanks and bottled without fining or filtering and with a small dose of sulfur. It is classified as a Vino da Tavola. "Garnaccia" is an historic local synonym for Vernaccia. 2019 was the first vintage. The label (featuring "Silvio Messana" rather than "Montesecondo") and the packaging (a clear bottle with a crown cap) separate this new line of wines, featuring departures in style and sourcing for Silvio that set them apart from the core Montesecondo estate wines.
