Top 10 wines in the US press

2013 Cesani Vernaccia di San Gimignano, Italy

vernaccia_1Lettie Teague, writing in the Wall Street Journal, set out to find a selection of budget summer wines priced under $15 that still deliver on quality this week. Kicking off a trio of her top choice is this Tuscan white from Vernacchia di San Gimignano, Tuscany’s only white wine producing DOCG.

“This lively, medium-bodied white from a high-altitude vineyard in Tuscany’s subregion of Pancole is marked by notes of almond and citrus”, said Teague. “A wonderfully refreshing apéritif, it’s perfect to drink by the pool—as I imagine some savvy wine salesman would advise.”

Price: $13

  1. Charles Garrett says:

    Not in fact – or by any means – Italy’s only white wine DOCG. There is also the (admittedly obscure) Albana di Romagna DOCG, which predates it as a DOCG (1987 v. 1993). And there is Soave, also white wine only, which has DOCG status for Soave Superiore. And going south what about Greco di Tufo and Fiano di Avellino, both white wine only and DOCG in status?

    Not clear whether the error lies with Lettie Teague or the DB compiler

  2. Many thanks for including Artesana’s TMZ on this list and thanks to Dave McIntyre for his review in the Washington Post. We are a small production estate winery specializing in terroir-driven Tannat blends handcrafted by our two award-winning Uruguayan women winemakers. We now have distribution in 12 states. There are approximately 200 wineries in Uruguay, most family run and very small, miniscule compared to Argentina or Chile. I recently wrote an article about visiting this extraordinary country with its many outstanding wines, not to mention gorgeous beaches: http://www.winetouristmagazine.com/new-best-kept-secret-south-america-uruguay/.
