Il Colombaio di Santa Chiara
The Vernaccia wines produced by Il Colombaio di Santa Chiara are produced with 100% Vernaccia which is native to the area and have always been rigorously cultivated as such.
The wines they create are strictly produced with grapes native to the San Gimignano area. As a result, the grapes grown here have a unique and genuine character. They have complex and robust fragrances with a rich bouquet; when tasting you can appreciate the structure of the wine that remains on the palate with a prolonged and persistent aftertaste.
“In the past the wish of each wine maker was to make a good wine: this was the passionate bond between the winemaker and the vineyard. My father Mario handed me down this passion. He taught me that the vines are a reflection of the land and it can be only improved in the cellar, and not changed. The secrets of the excellence found in my wines are from a responsible treatment of the land by refusing to use pesticides, devoting constant awareness in the vineyard while grapes are growing, followed by the careful selection of the grapes during the harvest which is always done manually”
– Alessio Logi
At the Colombaio di Santa Chiara estate those bonds are still existing thanks to the endeavors of Alessio Logi.
We are happy to offer their white wines which are a traditional interpretation of the most celebrated varietal of San Gimignano.
