Le Calcinaie Vernaccia di San Gimignan 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Bright straw. Herb and citrus aromas, with a hint of peach. Suave and smooth, with very good density and length to the bright fruit flavors. From an area in the San Gimignano viticultural zone at the opposite end from Fontaleoni, the soils here are sandier and lighter, producing floral, fruity wines with less mineral austerity...91" IWC 07/12

In the beautiful Tuscan countryside, 3 kilometers from the center of San Gimignano, is located the estate of Le Calcinaie. Speaking is Simone Santini, owner and jack-of-all-trades of this small and well-run estate.

Then from 2001, our wine-making itself is a certified biological process. All my efforts go towards a continuing qualitative improvement of the wines we produce: quality above all. Read less
