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.
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.
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.
A history of six centuries, where the lives of heretics, jurists, churchmen and winemakers are intertwined. Great people, great passions and great wines in the countryside south of Siena, one of the most beautiful territories in the world that keeps alive its most ancient traditions.
In 2001 and 2002 Donatella Cinelli Colombini's cellars were inaugurated at Fattoria del Colle and Casato Prime Donne.
The 34 hectares of vineyard of the company are almost entirely replanted and a sales network is born that exports the wine in 38 countries around the world.
