Visila is one of the wine symbols of Podere La Marronaia and the San Gimignano area.
Vinification with soft pressing and fermentation at a controlled temperature using selected yeasts in small quantities allows for the production of this wine. While it is strongly linked to the territory in which it is made, it is nevertheless produced according to a modern method and is capable of enhancing the aromatic profile of this noble grape.
The vineyard is located at an altitude of 300 meters and is cultivated at a density of 4,000 plants per hectare. Harvesting is done exclusively by hand, for optimal wine, during the first weeks of September, when the grapes are ripe. In the first stage of fermentation, the skins are macerated, and subsequently decanted in steel vats for 6 months at a temperature ranging between 13-17 ° C. The bottle aging takes at least two months.
Visila della Marronaia owes its name anagram of the name “Silvia” which is dedicated this wine. Native of San Gimignano for generations, inextricably linked to this territory as this noble and ancient wine, only the Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG could represent it.
