Wine cellar in Tuscany

At a time when the dominant trend leads towards homologation, Podere Ema has always believed in a different approach. With the development of our wine cellar, we have embraced the challenge of rediscovering the traditions of our land, and then renewing them with passion and care.

In our vineyards, we cultivate respect for the land and the winegrowing culture of our region. Each grape tells a story of thousand-year-old tradition, but also of innovation. We want to share this experience with you, inviting you to discover the past and present of Tuscany in every sip.

Tuscany's Rediscovery of Terroir

The Search for Roots

In the heart of Tuscany, Italy’s wine region par excellence, indigenous grape varieties guard a millenary heritage that tells stories of tradition, passion and dedication. Among these grape varieties, one stands out like a rediscovered gem, a rarity that has crossed the centuries with grace and persistence: Foglia Tonda.

Witness of passion and innovative vision

In the heart of Chianti, in 2001, Enrico Calvelli founded Podere Ema, a winery that embodies an extraordinary adventure of passion and innovation in the land of Tuscan wine. Immerse yourself in a sensory journey through the magic of our wine cellar, where tradition is interwoven with love for the art of winemaking. Explore the secrets of our fine wines on a unique adventure in our atmospheric wine cellar.

  • Our Wines

    “I’Bianco” is a wine produced by Podere Ema with 60% Trebbiano and 40% Malvasia del Chianti grapes carefully vinified at a very low temperature in order to enhance the varietal characteristics. Perfect as an aperitif and as an accompaniment to light, typically summer dishes, which enhance its freshness.

  • Our Wines

    Rosso Ema is made from a Sangiovese base accompanied by indigenous vines in varying percentages depending on the vintage. An easy-drinking young wine, it is an excellent match for traditional Tuscan dishes.

  • Our Wines

    “I’Rosato” is a wine produced by Podere Ema with 100% Sangiovese grapes vinified through a very brief contact between skin and pulp at a controlled temperature, which determines its light pinkish hue and enhances its floral and citrus notes well balanced by acidity. It is excellent as an aperitif or in combination with white meats, fish and lightly seasoned cheeses.

  • Our Wines

    ‘Nocchino’ comes from the desire to create great wines using only indigenous Tuscan grapes that enhance the concept of ‘Puro Toscano’. The blend includes Sangiovese, Foglia Tonda and Colorino in varying percentages depending on the vintage. A wine of intense ruby red colour, great structure, with a marked fruity note supplemented by spicy notes.

  • Our Wines

    “Fogliatonda” comes from the desire to create great wines using only native Tuscan grapes that highlight the concept of ‘Puro Toscano’. Fogliatonda is produced with 100% Foglia Tonda grapes, a centuries-old Tuscan variety rediscovered and appreciated for its oenological potential. Podere Ema vinifies and refines part of the Foglia Tonda grapes in Terracotta Jars of Impruneta, to reaffirm and enhance the peculiarities of territory and tradition as a whole.
