San Gimignano’s slightly peppery, dry white wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, is the only DOCG white wine in Tuscany, and it has quite a provenance, too: It’s cited in Dante’s “Divine Comedy.” A relaxing place to sip a glass or two is diVinorum, in former stables with a small terrace at Via degli Innocenti 5 ((tel) 0577-907-192). At the famous Gelateria di Piazza, Piazza della Cisterna 4 (www.gelateriadipiazza.com; (tel) 0577-942-244), master gelato maker Sergio offers creative combinations like refreshing Champeigmo, with sparkling wine and pink grapefruit, and crema di Santa Fina, made with saffron and pinenuts.
