Tenuta le Calcinaie Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

A wine obtained from Vernaccia grapes of San Gimignano. After a brief maceration of the grapes, separated from the bunch and crushed, the juice is taken away from the skins, from which it has aquired aroma and sapidity. This process is followed by a static decantation of the must and, finally, fermentation in steel vats at a controlled temperature. An extended period of fermentation enriches the new wine with floral aromas, complexity and intensity, respecting of the tipicity of these grapes.

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. Ever since I earned my degree in wine technology at the Siena Agrarian Institute, I've dreamed of dedicating myself to nature and wine. I was finally able to do this, planting my first vinyard in 1986 and beginning to make wine in 1993. From 1995 on the estate produces grapes by biological methods: this means copper and sulfur salts as antiparassite insecticides and genuine fertilizer; that is, products with a very low toxicity. 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
