This is a unique wine because it is very rare to find Tuscan white wines made with Traminer grapes. The white wine “Sanchimento” is an organic wine obtained from grapes from a small vineyard around the chapel of the estate. Its name comes in fact from the patron saint of the small church, Pope Clement I martyr in 97 AD. in Sebastopol. San Chimento is in fact the medieval name given to the same Saint and still today used by the local population.
The small Sanchimento vineyard was planted in 1989 with Traminer grapes on the north side of the hill that goes up behind the chapel at Fattoria del Colle 404 m above sea level. The soil is deep with mostly clay and quaternion deposits.
The Sanchimento 2019 is characterized by something new and refined and even more versatile in food pairing because it can be matched also with young cheeses and dishes that are just a bit flavourful. This novelty come from a quick refining at the beginning that follows the orange wine imprint , for this reason is appears completely different to previous years, with more structure and aromas, with hints of yellow coloured fruits. So Sanchimento is a “family wine” obtained through grapes grown on the farm, picked by hand, vinified in a state-of-the-art manner and bottled in a limited production of 2,000 bottles.
