Jacuzzi Family Vineyard White Blend Carneros Gilia's Vernaccia 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Vernaccia was thought to have been brought by the Etruscans to the San Gimignano region of Italy. There it is known to produce ripe and powerful white wines that during the Renaissance were considered Italy’s finest white wine and in 1966 it was the first Italian white wine to be awarded DOC status. Keeping with the Italian tradition, we have blended a small amount of Chardonnay (11%) into the wine. Pair with grilled fish or seafood, pasta with cream sauces and prosciutto with melon.
