Vernaccia di San Gimignano was the first wine in Italy to be awarded the DOC status in 1966, which was then upgraded to DOCG in 1993. The parents of Franco Troiani, the present owner, moved from the Marche to Tuscany in 1959 and purchased the estate. In the 1990s a large part of the vineyards were replanted. The Vernaccia clones were collected, and still are today, from the the oldest vineyard of the property, planted in 1980. Franco now replants two or three hectares of vineyards each year.

Dolin Vermouth de Chambery Dry (NV) 750 ML
Only logged in customers who have purchased this product may leave a review.

In cooking, Dolin Dry adds depth and an herbal character that normal white wine cannot.
