Gastone Nencini (Bilancino di Barberino, Tuscany 1 March 1930 – Florence, 1 February 1980) was an Italian road racing cyclist who won the 1960 Tour de France and the 1957 Giro d'Italia.

Nicknamed Il Leone del Mugello, "The Lion of Mugello" (from his birthplace Barberino del Mugello, near Florence), Nencini was a powerful all-rounder, particularly strong in the mountains.

He was an amateur painter and a chain smoker. He was gifted as descender. "The only reason to follow Nencini downhill would be if you had a death wish", said the French rider Raphaël Géminiani.
