The story of Il Colombaio di Santa Chiara begins like many in Italy, a family farm built by hard work. Mario Logi began working the land as a teenager in the 1950s, later acquiring his own property and raising a family. In 2002, Mario’s youngest son, Alessio, who was studying Oenology, wanted to put his efforts and passion to use and make wine from their own vineyards. It quickly became a family project and the winery, Il Colombaio di Santa Chiara, was born. In the late 1990’s, Mario purchased the Parish San Donato with its, chapel, parsonage and ﬁelds. It was there that the family built its ﬁrst, small wine cellar. The three brothers, Giampiero, Stefano and Alessio, enjoyed working together, experiencing the beauty of the land, guided by Mario and his extensive knowledge of the vines. With the expansion of the winery, the property is now Locanda dei Logi, a beautiful inn just a short distance from San Gimignano.
Pale, straw yellow with golden ﬂecks. The bouquet is delicate and fresh with scents of apple and ﬂoral notes. The palate is dry and structured with green apple, key lime, melon rind, with a wonderfully balanced acidity and touch of ﬂint and a pleasing note of salinity on the ﬁnish. The grapes were carefully selected and harvested by hand. After a short maceration on the skins, the must was fermented in temperature controlled stainless-steel tanks, resulting in a fresh, vibrant, delicately aromatic dry, white wine.
