Tenuta le Calcinaie is one of the breakout wineries of this report. The…Vernaccia-based wines presented all performed beautifully. I look forward to tasting more from this estate in the future.” – The Wine Advocate

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 farmed organically. Classic Vernaccia with good structure, balance and charm is produced here, as well as a great-value Chianti.

Vineyard Practices: This winery is certified Organic by ICEA: The Italian Institute for Ethical and Environmental Certification.

 

100% Sangiovese planted to soils rich in calcareous and galestro marl in the zone of San Gimignano. Vineyards first planted in 1973. Fermentation and maceration occur over 10 days, followed by aging for 6 months in a combination of stainless steel and large oak casks. Certified Organic.

 

"Notes of ripe raspberries and dark cherries with hints of cocoa and bitter spices. Medium-bodied with firm, compact tannins and velvety texture. Lengthy and structured. Drink or hold.91 points" James Suckling
