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.
