Castello di Querceto has a small percentage of production for white grape varieties, and this demonstrates the level of passion and attention to detail of this producer. Vernaccia di San Gimignano by Castello di Querceto is a wine that lends itself well to many combinations. Indeed with fish dishes, this wine manages to create its maximum expression.

A remarkable acidity makes it a wine that can be of particular interest to Riesling drinkers.

When you walk through the medieval walls of San Gimignano, it seems like you went back in time. Vernaccia is the flagship of this fantastic city, and it is an excellent style with crisp acidity and very refined green and herbal characteristics.
