Bellini Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2012

Member Review by vin0vin0:

Fairly simple Tuscan vernaccia. Not too much of anything going on, a bit of honey and orange on the nose, decent enough acidity along with some fig on the palate. There's a bit of bitterness on the finish.

The Bellini family is part of an old land-holding family which, at the end of the 19th century, began to distribute in the area the products from its farms, with special attention to its wines. In the 1950s Carlo Bellini developed the business, expanding  the sale of wines in Italy and Europe. Today his daughters, Letizia and Alessandra Bellini, and his nephew, Maurizio Masi, continue his work, consolidating the traditional European markets and extending sales overseas where Bellini wines have become known and appreciated. Bellini wines are made from local grapes, in part from their own lands and in part purchased from nearby farms following a careful selection. The winery is directed by Maurizio Masi who, after earning his degree in Industrial Chemistry, worked alongside his uncle Carlo in the family business and continues today to combine tradition with organizational and technological renewal to produce ever better wines. The creation and bottling of wines is still carried out on the original site of the family business in the center of the town of Rufina. The building dates back to 1930 when it was constructed around an old farmhouse complex of which some elements still remain. The building has since been remodeled and expanded and it is here that, with the help of modern technology yet with respect for tradition, the grapes are transformed so as to exalt the natural characteristics bestowed upon them by the land of their birth.   Read less
