    What I love about Sangiovese that is aged in large neutral oak barrels verses new French barrique is the vibrancy and true character that the grape can still express. In the Ingredienti, it is completely stainless steel and a few lively characteristics have been highlighted. What you get is a vibrant and fresh nose that exudes beautiful notes of baking spice. It is alive on the palate with unique crunchy fruit and evident tannins. High acidity runs through the wine while a touch of savory, almost soy sauce like character clings to the tip of your tongue. This wine is anything but reserved.

    Le Calcinaie is a small Tuscan estate close to the town of San Gimignano and one of our favorite in this area. Not only are the wines certified organic but also owner Simone Santini has chosen to produce this wonderful 100% Sangiovese entirely in steel tanks without the use of sulphur. It's texturally plush and round yet pleasantly structured with some youthful tannins and acidity that emerge on the finish. The combination of earthy Tuscan terrior and primary black fruit make this perfect with hearty pastas, meats and firm cheeses.
