91+ pts Robert Parker Wine Advocate (2018, NOT the 2019 being sold today/here)
Montenidoli is one of my favorite producers in San Gimignano that I admire because of the very pure and symmetrical wines made here. The 2018 Vernaccia di San Gimignano Tradizionale draws its fruit from the typical limestone soils of the area that are rich in ancient marine sediment. With 25,000 bottles made, it sees an easy fermentation in glass-tiled cement vats. It opens to an enriched golden color (maybe even too saturated) with aromas of neutral fruit, peach, pear and Golden Delicious apple. There are slight hints of that limestone soil as well. The mouthfeel ends on a dry note, with pretty honey-like flavors on the finish.

One of the best bangs for you buck for white wines in Italy, this is a case buy no brainer to have around the house this summer.  It sees a little skin contact to add a little bit of texture and deepen the already complex nose and palate you get from these gorgeous vernaccia grapes.  Acidity, body, complexity, depth and length in spades and all under $20?!
