Enrico Santini has made a name for himself as one of the most dynamic and respected producers in the prestigious Bolgheri DOC.
A native of the area, he is a “garagiste” in the truest sense of the word. Enrico is meticulous in his vineyards, his wines come exclusively from his organic estate, and they radiate his profound passion.
As one of the only wine producers in Bolgheri who was born and raised in the area, he has a deep commitment to the region that developed out of his love for the land and the microclimate of this spectacular Tuscan coastal area.
Enrico Santini continues to turn out impressive wines in the full-bodied generous style that is typical of Bolgheri. Antonio Galloni (WA)
