Tasting Notes

This is a Chianti Classcio with such elegance and freshness.  We drank this at the weekend with venison lasagne and it slips down beautifully, and like all fine wine, you just wish you had another bottle to hand. Very good with lamb too with lots of rosemary. You’ll also find this excellent to drink in a few years to come and we look forward to seeing how it ages over the next 6-8 years.

More Info

This fledgling producer has put everything they can into buying the right patches of soil and hiring a top consultant. The 2018 is their coming of age as this wine joins a list of pedigreed producers.  And rightly so – for this wine brings such purity and finesse from the high altitude vineyards that are situated in Greve - on the border of both the famous localities of Panzano and Badia a Passignano (home of Antinori Solaia).  

FROM THE PRESS

“A gorgeous, mid-weight wine. Freshly cut flowers, sweet red berry fruit, tobacco, orange peel and spice are nicely pushed forward in this translucent, mid-weight Chianti Classico that delivers so much Sangiovese character.”
Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com
“I am delighted to report that this is an utterly delicious Chianti. While it is just starting out on what will be a decade of glorious enchantment, this wine is already drinking beautifully, and it shows rare detail, terroir, breeding and promise. There is no Chianti in the UK that comes close to the value and potential afforded here.”
Matthew Jukes
