One of my favourite reds for every day drinking - organic Chianti

'This Rufina estate is fast becoming one of the best sources for affordable Chiantis that really speak of sangiovese and the cooler Rufina terroir.' Antonio Galloni

From the beautiful Lavacchio estate that champions organic farming and the organic lifestyle! The nose is earthy at first, but then revealscherries surrounded by fresh flower petals, wild herbs and a touch of mint. You could almost be walking along the Tuscan hills in a late autumn breeze, surveying the beautiful landscape - we wish!

While this is always a Swig staple, and an absolute favourite of the team, it is important to highlight just how wonderful the 2014 is. Although a tricky vintage, Lavacchio didn't make their Riserva, made from the best old vines, and put those grapes into the 'Cedro'. The result is an excellent value, characterful Chianti
.

Over the years that we've worked with the wonderful team led by Faye Lottero at Lavacchio, they have never ceased to impress us; not only with their wines, which continue to go from strength to strength, but also with their commitment to bio-diversity and an organic lifestyle.  For them, organic farming isn't just a means of differentiating their wines, but a way of life. If you visit, and you really should, their farm shop/bottega offers natural produce not just from their estate but their neighbours as well. You can get a glass of wine with no added sulfites and a plate of delicious gluten free paste. That commitment to their environment and those they share it with pervades everything they do.
