Sanchimento IGT Toscana 2020 – supertuscan from Fattoria del Colle

This Sanchimento is obtained with the first grapes picked by the “masked pickers” which means those wearing the anti-Covid masks!!

Everybody will remember the 2020 grape harvest at Fattoria del Colle for the difficulty in following the safety rules regardless of the heat, fatigue and not being able to breathe properly. But nobody was infected let’s hope it will be the only grape harvest under the Covid claws.



The Traminer grapes were handpicked; the clusters were cooled in an old IVECO refrigerated truck. It is an antique but we keep it to use just for the grape harvest.

After a first experimentation in 2019, the cellar master Barbara Magnani with the two junior wine makers Sabrina and Giada launched themselves into a very interesting chemistry between traditional vinification and orange wine.

Part of the grapes was in fact vinified with the skins and with autochthonous yeasts. The blend with the Sanchimento vinified traditionally took place before bottling. The result is a wine of great character and finesse, less aromatic than before but more complex on the nose. More agile, full and structured on the palate. A wine that is not ordinary that demonstrates courage in experimentation and interprets the natural characteristics of the Traminer grapes grown in Tuscany.

The small Sanchimento vineyard was planted in 1989 by Fausto Cinelli, Donatella Cinelli Colombini’s father. It surrounds the San Clemente chapel at Fattoria del Colle. Chimento is in fact the name that was used locally instead of Clemente in the tongue that then became Sienese vernacular.
IGT Toscana Sanchimento 2020 is consequently a BIO Supertuscan produced in a small series of 2000 bottles. An exclusive wine for wine lovers that will visit or stay at Fattoria del Colle in 2021.

This is the first 2019 vintage wine by Donatella Cinelli Colombini to be ready, and reveals a desire for experimentation. The Traminer grapes used to make it look towards orange wines. It is just a touch of orange but Sanchimento 2019 appears completely different to previous years, with more structure and aromas, with hints of yellow coloured fruits. This is 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.
Sanchimento IGT 2019 is a BIO wine (organic) produced with Traminer grapes from the small vineyard that surrounds the San Clemente Chapel (or Sanchimento as in local old tongue) at Fattoria del Colle. The building was built in 1592 by the present owner’s ancestors while the vineyard was planted by her father in 1989. Traminer is an unusual variety in Tuscany that, thanks to the altitude of Fattoria del Colle at 404 metres above sea level and to the cool nights, reaches ripening preserving freshness and aromas.

Sanchimento IGT is a limited production of just 2.000 bottles.
