Le Calcinaie   Tuscany, Italy  
  Young producer 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 this 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 from 12 hectares of vineyards.

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