Wine maker notes
Produced from the property owned vineyards in San Gimignano the wine Ab Vinea Doni (meaning: gifts from the vineyard) is made from Vernaccia (95%) and Chardonnay (5%) grapes. The fermentation and refining are done in 225l. oak barrels for about 4/5 months. Once bottled, it completes its refining before leaving the winery. The typical characteristics of Vernaccia are enhanced by the fermentation in oak barrels while the addition of Chardonnay increases the bouquet and roundness of this wine.

Producer
When Riccardo Falchini bought Casale-Falchini in 1964, he was simply following in his family’s footsteps – his predecessors had made wine for Cosimo de’ Medici. The estate is located just outside the walled city of San Gimignano in Tuscany and is blessed with superior terroir. The soils are composed of sandy yellow clay and Pliocene fossils. The lime from these fossils acts as nourishment and also helps retain water. In 1976, when Riccardo built a new winery, he was amongst the first to use cold processing and state-of-theart, temperature control equipment for fermentation. Today, Falchini remains a leading producer of the region’s best known wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, which comprises 60% of the estate’s production. After Riccardo’s death in 2010, his sons Michael and Christopher along with consulting enologist Giacomo Tachis (the winemaker behind Tignanello, Sassicaia, Ornellaia and Solaia) continue to enhance the Falchini reputation for fine wines.
