A wealthy Florentine family built L’Antica Fornace (the ancient kiln) in the 16th century in the medieval village of Castagnoli, near Gaiole in Chianti, the heart of today’s Chianti Classico region. The Fornace changed ownership several times over the centuries until Loris Cantalici purchased the site in 1972. Brothers Carlo and Daniele preserved the historic site and integrated it into their winery when they began their winemaking journey in the late 1990’s.

Lecci e Brocchi Chianti Classico 2020
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.
INTRODUCING PODERE LECCI E BROCCHI
Sabrina Lastrucci has led Podere Lecci e Brocchi since 2011 when her father Vasco passed the farm over to her keen management. Vasco had previously sold the Chianti Classico fruit from the farm he purchased from the parish priest in 1970 on the edge of Villa a Sesta and accumulated a full cellar of winemaking materials and equipment over his lifetime as an avid hobbyist. Sabrina continues the traditional winegrowing techniques of her father but now with an official organic certification underway.
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.
Poggerino Chianti Classico 2019 ItalyPoggerino Chianti Classico 2019 Italy
Dark cherry and spice with cedar and vanille from the French oak ageing. Notes of blackberries, leather, cherries and red currant on the nose with a touch of liquorice. Persistent tannins.
Piero has crafted another beauty in 2019. This wine, that he calls his ‘business card’, is one of the most reliably delicious and complex wines you will find for under £20. Bursting with ripe cherry fruit, with that characteristic cherry skin ‘snap’, but with depth and savour, this is classic Sangiovese from a true master. Fresh with amazing acidity, match this to a fine ragú or simply pull the cork, pour a glass and let yourself bathe in all that Tuscan sun.
“Poggerino” is a small organic farm located in the central area of the Chianti Classico. There are 43 hectares of vineyards, olive groves, woods, some ancient farmhouses and a church dating back to the 12th century.
The company is one of the farms of a large property that belonged to Prince Ginori Conti, descendant of one of the oldest families in Florence. Floriana Ginori Conti, inherited the farm from her father in the 70s, began in 1980 with her husband Fabrizio Lanza, to produce Chianti Classico with the “Poggerino” label.
In 1999 she donated the property to her two children, Piero and Benedetta Lanza who have managed the company since 1988.
Alongside the production of wine and oil, the Fattoria Poggerino is also an agritourism. In fact, some ancient farmhouses are part of the company; they are the typical Chianti rural buildings unique in the world for harmony of shapes and integration with the landscape. The holiday in Poggerino is a relaxing holiday recommended for all those who wish to spend a few days away from the noise of the city, breathe the romantic atmosphere of these places and wake up in the morning with the singing of birds.
Poggerino Chianti Classico 2019
Poggerino wines are produced exclusively with grapes from these vineyards.
