The story of a small but important Chianti company seen through that of the Chianti Classico, back in time to the Etruscan origins of the name Riecine. A story of men and women, of families, of personalities, of wines that have contributed to making this wonderful territory famous all over the world. For this you will find the path of the last 50 years also narrated by the wines themselves which, year after year, the vineyards of Riecine have created. A story that has led to the rebirth, promoted by the current very active owners, starting from the new vineyards that have been added, from the modern techniques that have joined the traditional ones to continue to make a territory and a wine speak, the Chianti Classico, passed through periods of strong and radical changes.
Organic aims followed both in vineyard and in winery. Manual grape harvest, then, eighteen months in barriques. When tasted, the nose displays firmness with aromas of violet petals and alcohol-infused cherries, a touch of juniper. Sharpness in the mouth: juicy, very clear and extremely elegant.
The vintages change, not the result. The most recent course of Riecine convinces us more and more and the new Chianti Classico '18 confirms it. Magnificent wine for grace and pleasantness, joyful in the fruit and fine in the texture of the sip.
