Podere Le Boncie, Toscana Rosso 'Chiesamonti'

Write a Review

Vintage: 2020

Grape Varietal: Sangiovese, with a touch of Canaiolo

Farming: Organic, Biodynamic

Chiesamonti is from single 1.3-hectare parcel called Chiesa Monti, where the 10-year-old vines consist of almost all Sangiovese with a touch of Canaiolo.  Due to the stony nature of the soil here, this wine has a linear and granular tannin.  A sultry red Sangiovese fruit over grainy tannin is in contrast to the Le Trame which has a tighter structure and will need more time to relax. Silkier, higher-toned, and overall prettier, with a more blatant mineral underpinning and less sumptuously fleshy fruit.

Hand-harvested, spontaneous fermention in open-top barrels, 24 months aging in neutral 500l barrels and Austrian and Slavonian botti, unfined and unfiltered.
