Giannina 2002 Vernaccia (Vernaccia di San Gimignano)

  • Best Buy
  1. $11
From Giannina di Puthod, this is Vernaccia at its near best. The laser-beam nose offers lemon-lime to the max, and that’s followed by a round palate with fresh citrus and green apple flavors. It’s weighty but upright, with a dry-as-a-bone crystalline finish.  — M.S.  (8/1/2004)

Pietrafitta 2008 La Costa Riserva Vernaccia (Vernaccia di San Gimignano)

  1. $25
La Costa Riserva, made with the zesty Vernaccia grape (one of Tuscany’s most important white wine varieties), is a big, bold wine with thick layers of banana, apricot and vanilla cream. The rich wine doesn’t feel heavy on the palate thanks to a crisp spot of acidity on the close.  — M.L.  (3/1/2012)
