Cooltours®- San Gimignano Wine Region
The medieval town of San Gimignano is with no doubt well known for its architecture made of different size towers, a Unesco patrimony known all over the word as the "medieval Mahnattan".
San Gimignano is also a small wine region in Tuscany where a special white wine is produced: Vernaccia di San Gimignano.
Its origins are pretty old and the complexity of this tuscan white wine produced mostly by family owned wineries is often called a red wine with a white color due to the complexity and the minerality typical of this product and some characteristics similar to a red wine.
