Riecine

Though Riecine's vineyard area dates from the 12th century when it was owned and managed by amonastery, the estate was not actually founded until 1971 by John Dunkley. Today, the domaine isowned by Gary Baumann and run by Sean O'Callaghan and his best friend, Zolfo, a golden retrieverwith a penchant for Sangiovese.Classically styled yet produced using modern techniques, Riecine wines are refined and superbly balanced - some of the best examples that we have tasted from the region.
