*Rocca delle Macie Vernaccia 2009
Although by far the greater production of wine in Chianti is reds, the region does grow some whites, and this one, from San Gimignano, near Siena, is one of the good ones. It's fruity and fairly light, and is given the necessary balance which keeps it from being sweet by a substratum of almonds in the finish. $8.99 on line.
