  • Goedhuis, May 2024

    A gorgeous glassful of Tuscan sunshine, this mouth-watering Vernaccia comes from the tower-festooned hillside town of San Gimignano in the province of Siena. Crisp, citrusy and thirst quenching the 2023 is brimming with fleshy white peach. We love its salty, mineral core and long, focused finish of fresh almonds, jasmine and playful apricot. Perfect everyday drinking and a guaranteed crowd pleaser.

Tenuta Le Calcinaie is owned and run by one of the most delightful and passionate winemakers in all of Italy, Simone Santini. He produces exceptional organically certified Vernaccia from his estate that he purchased in 1984 and built up slowly to its first commercial release in 1993. Simone’s vineyards are planted in a unique terroir. Richly laden with ancient sea fossils (similar to the soil in Chablis), these calcium-rich shells dissolve into the earth during rainstorms. This water is then absorbed by the vine adding a soft salinity to his whites. Extended lees maceration creates additional complexity and roundness. His use of stainless steel tanks on many of his wines ensures exceptional purity of fruit which is long lived and refreshing, yet full on the palate.Read less

Region

Vernaccia di San Gimignano

San Gimignano is a picturesque medieval village whose sandstone towers rise boldly from the southern Tuscan hillsides. Unbeknown to countless tourists, it is surrounded by vines of which Vernaccia is the main grape variety. For many years, this distinctive grape had virtually fallen into oblivion, until 1966 when it became a DOC (and then a DOCG in 1993), saving it from possiblefuture extinction. Other varieties - Tuscan and international - can also be found in this upcomingarea.
