San Gimignano produced 90 percent of the wine from homonymous wines and the remaining percentage from other certified vines. Vernaccia produces approximately six million bottles annually. The wine is then aged and changes color from a straw yellow tint to a golden hue with a subtle sour taste and a light bitter aftertaste.
