Tenuta Le Calcinaie 2015 (Italy: Tuscany)

Name Tenuta Le Calcinaie 2015
Varietal Vernaccia di San Gimignano (DOCG)
Region Italy: Tuscany
Notes "A bright, juicy version, boasting floral, peach, grapefruit and honey aromas and flavors. Pure and elegant, finishing with a characteristic hint of bitterness. Drink now. 2,350 cases made." (Wine Spectator) "The 2015 Vernaccia di San Gimignano is absolutely gorgeous. The ripe vintage has given the Vernaccia lovely depth and texture. Yellow orchard fruits, chamomile and white flowers add lift and brightness throughout. Best of all the 2015 is a terrific value." (Antonio Galloni, Vinous)

Additional Notes

"Simone Santini's entry level wine plays its cards well. The 2015 Vernaccia di San Gimignano is a beautifully zesty and crisp wine with citrus definition followed by stone fruit and white melon. Those fruit tones are subdued and refined. The mouthfeel leaves a similar impression of streamlined elegance. White flower aromas seal the deal." (Monica Larner, Wine Advocate)
