San Quirico di San Gimignano 2010 Vernaccia

San Quirico di San Gimignano 2010 Vernaccia,
$11.89-$15.99, 87 points, was this afternoon's aperitif.
Vernaccia, is a dry white wine from Tuscany. The color is a light gold to copper in tone. I found the aroma to be a bit earthy, with some light perfume wafting out of the glass, yet slightly sour (A note found on late palate and finish). The medium body carried good acidity, with just hints of grapefruit and pineapple, but was somewhat neutral. The quality of this wine was more in its refreshing texture and its laudable light liquidity. The finish was short with light spice and a sour note; Ethan more rightly described it as "bitter". The alcohol (12.5%) was unnoticeable.
