Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, July 2020

    The wines of Riecine are always Goedhuis favourites. They follow 100% organic techniques and are gradually introducing biodynamic principles. The succulent red fruit flavours and powdered tannins of the 2018 are balanced by a satisfying line of acidity. A touch of herb and spice flows onto a long finish.

    Decanter, February 2020,
    Score: 89

    With various vineyards scattered throughout Gaiole-in-Chianti, Riecine concentrates solely on Sangiovese for its Chianti Classico. The annata is a blend of sites all between 450 to 500 metres above sea level. This takes some time in the glass to focus. As it opens up, it reveals fresh mint, tarragon and green tea. This palate is bright and candid with Sangiovese's finely powdered tannins lightly dusting youthful red berries.

Producer

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.

Region

Chianti Classico

There are seven zones within the Chianti appellation, though its centre, Chianti Classico is themost famous. The appellation regulations require that Sangiovese must make up at least 75% of theblend (many wines are 100%); however smaller percentages of native and non-native varieties, suchas Canaiolo, Colorino and Cabernet Sauvignon, are also permitted. The denomination of Riservaindicates a wine usually produced with more concentrated grapes than the traditional cuvée andrequires a minimum of one additional year of ageing.
