Semillon

Costa

The Sémillon grape is quite heavy, with low acidity and an almost oily texture. This, realatively easy to cultivate variety, normally has high yields. Sémillon wines can age very well, developing aromas of honey and candied fruits, while often retaining a fresh citrus note.
Along with Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle, Sémillon is one of only three approved white wine varieties in the Bordeaux region, where the best dry wines are produced in Pessac-Léognan. Thanks to the grape’s tendency to became “noble rot“ it is also key to the production of sweet wines such as Sauternes.
At the same it is hard to determine the history of Sémillon grape. Presently it can be found in different parts of the world such as Chile, California and South Africa. Although planted widely around the globe, Sémillon only develops real and distinctive character in Australia, where it arrived in the early 1800s.
On the Tuscan coast it is a relatively rare variety. However in Lucca province it can be found as a part of Montecarlo Bianco DOC as well as in other provinces mostly blended with Trebbiano Toscano.
