    • MACCHI – A FAMILY FAVE

      You’ll find this great gastronomic wine in the trattorias of the hilltop towns and cypress-lined slopes of Tuscany. We fell in love with this wine back in 2014 when we first visited the vineyard. The ripe fruit aroma delivers pleasantly fresh pear, grapefruit and honeydew flavours with a long and savoury finish. A family favourite.

    From the winemaker

    Made with handpicked grapes from the superior-quality vines of our “cru” vineyard, this wine is soft pressed for a rounder, smoother flavour. In keeping with traditional methods, it is fermented with indigenous natural yeasts from our local environment. Unlike many mass-market wines, no commercial yeasts are used. The result reflects our heritage, land and environment. Drink it as soon as it is released or wait a few years for the characteristics of the grapes to develop.

    Food pairing

    Perfect with oily fish such as mackerel, salmon and sardines.

    Pairing this wine with fish is a long-held tradition. Back in the early 13th century, Pope Martin IV was especially fond of eels cooked in Vernaccia. Another classic Italian pairing is fresh truffles and scrambled eggs. You can also drink it with:

    • Sushi
    • Cod in white wine sauce
    • Chow fan or seafood with crispy noodles
    • Vitello tonnato (veal in tuna sauce)

    Reviews

    It is a wine that I can’t forget, a lovely fresh start with a memorable finish. Easy to drink, and drink, and drink. Pairs well with many types of food, from a delicate seafood dish to a spicy stir fry! What can I say, I truly miss this wine!
