Description

Italy's Fattorie Melini are a true Chianti institution, having produced wine since 1705. Only estate grown grapes are used in their wines and this Vernaccia di San Gimignano is the perfect example of why this Tuscan appellation is held in such high regard. Vernacchia grapes are subtly oaked to create a structured white which evolves over time, enhancing its character.

Light gold in colour, Le Grillaie shows aromatic hints of vanilla with floral notes of broom and lime, notes of honey and flint. The palate is full, savoury, soft but fresh and full of lively flavour. An elegant fruity and spicy background ends with a pleasant and persistent mineral finish. Try with baked fish, white meats, creamy pastas and mushroom dishes. 

The Melini family have been making wines in Chianti since 1705. Widely renowned as a world leader in the market, they have been at the forefront of innovation in Tuscany since their inception, from being the first to vinify their wines by vineyard, to introducing the famed Chianti straw flask in the 19th century. Their vineyards have some of the best positions and aspects in the area.
