The wine-making process in "white" follows the traditional style with a gentle pressing and low temperature in order to keep its exceptional fragrance. The fermentation, at a controlled temperature, has a medium duration of 12 to 18 days in either cement or steel vats. Vernaccia also offers up generous amounts of white peach and melon. It has lovely floral qualities, plenty of verve on the palate and often a fresh note of green almond. Vernaccia goes with so many dishes including cooked or raw fish, puff pastry appetizers and hard-to-pair vegetables like asparagus and artichoke.
