Poderi del Paradiso

(SAN GIMIGNANO – SIENA) Vasco Cetti produces in his hometown San Gimignano red wine and white wine very representative of the territory. Among the vast selection of red wines, Paterno II is truly an excellent wine.

Poderi del Paradiso’s History and Terroir

There is an almost automatic correlation between the words ” San Gimignano ” and white wine , the first denomination of controlled origin (DOC) of wine from all over Italy in 1996, known all over the world with the name ” Vernaccia di San Gimignano ” . Something unusual in a region where, for many centuries, white wine meant Trebbiano Toscano , a fresh and easy-to-drink bottle produced from Trebbiano grapes, pleasant but hardly unforgettable, plus a refreshing drink for the hot summer months that an attempt to offer something complex and with body and length.

But we are, after all, in Tuscany , an area where it is rather unusual not to also find a red wine , something to accompany the first courses, the pasta that is often served with ragù, or the second courses based on beef or pork, which characterize regional cuisine. In the past, most of the producers of San Gimignano offered a red in their line, but in most cases this meant a sparkling and light Chianti Colli Senesi, often well done, but rarely with the ambition to challenge the powerful and structured red wines produced in other parts of Tuscany.

But now no longer, San Gimignano today also boasts wines of greater structure and importance, and the pioneer of these efforts was Dr. Vasco Cetti , whose family has been in San Gimignano for over a millennium. And whose line can boast not one, but a series of reds that can challenge many famous Tuscan wines produced elsewhere.

The wines of Poderi del Paradiso

The estate does not despise Vernaccia , its Biscondola selection is in fact among the best in the area. But the main story are the remarkable wines produced from a series of red grapes, Sangiovese, Cabernet, Merlot , Syrah, or a carefully assembled combination of these in a blend. The choices are many, but among these the best are: A Filippo Merlot , the Silicum (blend Sangiovese, Merlot, Syrah), Mangiafoco Cabernet Sauvignon , Chianti Colli Senesi Riserva based on Chianti Sangiovese , the splendid Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot Saxa Calida and last but not least, the exceptional Paterno II , all Sangiovese, simply a superb wine.
