Lecci e Brocchi Chianti Classico 2015
A smooth and soft Chianti with intense red berries and a hint of violet with leather and earth. A savory palate with some baking spice and white pepper.
Podere Lecci e Brocchi is a small family farm and vineyard in the Castelnuovo Berardenga region of south-eastern Chianti Classico. The vineyards are undergoing organic certification and are farmed traditionally. Sabrina Lastrucci manages the vineyard and winemaking along with her husband Giancarlo and son Giovanni.
The steep, concave vineyard is tucked between the surrounding trees and brush at a relatively high elevation (400 meters) for the Castelnuovo Berardenga region in the south-east of Chianti Classico. The soil is mineral-rich, red Galestro which is atypical for Berardenga as well, contributing to the red fruit aromas and bright character of the wines. Lastrucci has planted some new bush-trained vines of Malvasia Nera with the intention of continuing the tradition of blending local varieties to complement the robust Sangiovese character. In the cellar, Lastrucci maintains a hands-off approach. She chooses not to drive her wines to fit the character of score-seeking Chianti Classico. Instead, Sabrina embraces the terroir-driven style of a wine that is approachable and ripe, representing the beautifully lifted style that matches her vision for Chianti’s future.

Pandolfa Rosato Ginevra 2021 Italy
A refreshing, crisp rose bursting with cherries and red fruits. Lively yet elegant, a great summer rose.
The agricultural vocation of Pandolfa comes from far away. Already at the beginning of the 1700s honey, oil, exquisitely flavored fruits, ancient cereals, linen and hemp and certainly wine were produced here , including the “Sanginese”, Sangiovese . After a period of decline, today the land is alive again, ready for new sowing. 90 hectares are dedicated to agricultural production . The most important production is that of wine , but olive trees and other fruit trees are also cultivated , such as quinces, figs, apples, medlars, cherries and pomegranates. In recent years, the arable areas have been the subject of a natural fertilization program, made up of field bean green manure and medical herbs. We are experimenting with the cultivation of aromatic herbs and a vegetable garden . We have a small farm with animals. The rest of the territory is covered by ancient woods. The Pandolfa vineyards cover 30 hectares and are located at altitudes ranging from 80 to 250 meters above sea level , with clays that change in color and complexity from grey-brown to ochre. The vineyards are mainly made up of Sangiovese and represent a classic and well-maintained cultivation model, the result of the great experience that this area has had for centuries.

Selvapiana Chianti Rufina 2020 ItalySelvapiana Chianti Rufina 2020 Italy
Selvapiana Chianti Rufina 2020
Selvapiana in Medieval times was one of the watch towers along the river Sieve built with the purpose to protect the city of Florence on the North-East border. During Renaissance the building was enlarged and transformed into a Villa as summer residence of noble Florentine families and of the bishops of Florence. In 1827 was acquired by Michele Giuntini, a successful banker and ancestor of Francesco Giuntini, the present owner and fifth generation to run the property from 1957 to 1997.
Francesco Giuntini has always believed in the value of the Rufina appellation and with obstinate passion has worked to increase the prestige of the area. He has been among the first Tuscan producer to make the Riserva wine only from Sangiovese grapes and to produce the flagship wine of Selvapiana from a single vineyard, Bucerchiale: the first vintage of the Chianti Rufina Riserva Vigneto Bucerchiale is 1979. In 1978 Francesco understanding the great capacities, hired the young Franco Bernabei as consultant enologist, nowadays one of the most well known Tuscan oenologist who still consults for Selvapiana.
Since 1997 Selvapiana is run by Francesco Giuntini’s adopted sons, Federico and Silvia, sons of the estate manager Franco Masseti, who worked with Francesco from 1953 to 1990. The property extend over a surface of 250 hectares of which 58 are planted with vines, 36 olive gardens and 140 wood, in the municipalities of Rufina, Pontassieve and Pelago.
The hills where the Rufina vineyards are located lye on the foothill of the Apennines, the chains of mountains that divides Tuscany from Emilia Romagna. The nearness to the mountains strongly influence the microclima of the area with cooler summer and great excursion of temperature between day and night. For this reason the grapes ripen slowly throughout all the summer season and reach a nice balance of all the aromatic compounds of the acin. The wines have fresh acidity, great finess and elegance, silky tannins and a long after taste.
