Montenidoli Vernaccia di San Gimignano Fiore 2018

Vernaccia di San Gimignano is one of those Italian whites that got a bad name in the old days of careless overproduction. But when made conscientiously, the wines befit a storied history that goes back at least to the 13th century. This wine, made by Montenidoli from organically grown grapes, is crisp, with floral and citrus aromas and flavors. It’s more concentrated than you might expect, and is just right for end-of-season caprese salads, fresh tomato sauces and pestos. (Artisan Wines, Norwalk, Conn.)
