"A rich, supple texture envelops honey, almond, butter and white pepper flavors here. Balanced and focused, gaining a mineral edge on the finish. Drink now through 2022.”
100% Vernaccia grown in sandy soils at an elevation of 250m. Fermented in steel vats at 16°C for 2-3 weeks, followed by aging on the lees until the following spring.
Simone Santini enjoys nothing more than a good joke, though he is very serious about winemaking at his small estate, located near the famous town of San Gimignano. Le Calcinaie is one of San Gimignano’s youngest wineries. It was founded in 1987 by Santini and in less than no time he transformed it into one of the region’s best newcomers. He started with 6 hectares but has now grown to 12 hectares covered with vines. The vines have perfect exposure and are beautifully tended. Classic Vernaccia with good structure, balance and charm is produced here, as well as a great-value Chianti.
