Wine information
Il Palagione is located outside the beautiful and ancient Tuscan town of San Gimignano. Its skyline of medieval towers guides visitors to its stone streets and picturesque fortressed walls. The estate, dating back to 1594, is owned by Monica Rota and her husband Giorgio Comotti. They purchased it in 1996 for a change of life where the seasons would pass gently, and their lives would be full of pastoral beauty rather than of 'honking horns'. A lovely wine that is perhaps a bit more restrained than some Italian whites, offering a Chablis-like texture and gentle aromas of lemon zest, ripe apple, melon and almond notes.

Robin says "San Gimignano has small seashells in much of its soil, similar to Chablis. Whilst Vernaccia can be a more aromatic variety than Chardonnay, Giorgio's version really plays on minerality and poise, lending to a nicely chiselled wine based on freshness."
