The nose is earthy at first, but then reveals sweet and sour black cherries surrounded by fresh flower petals, wild herbs and a touch of mint. Those pretty floral notes are just beginning to really express themselves.


Tasting Notes

From the beautiful Lavacchio estate that champions organic farming and the organic lifestyle! The nose is earthy at first, but then reveals sweet and sour black cherries surrounded by fresh flower petals, wild herbs and a touch of mint. You could be walking along the Tuscan hills in a late autumn breeze, surveying the beautiful landscape. Those pretty floral notes are just beginning to really express themselves.


Press Note:

Rose Murray Brown MW: "A Tuscan wine estate with a difference.... Organic wine estate Lavacchio is one of the best in the region." Bruce Palling, The Week: "Classic - a beautiful food wine. The perfect antidote for those who think Chianti is merely a quaffing wine with little complexity. The organically produced Rufina from Stefano di Blasi (former technical director at Antinori) benefits from having the riserva wine included in this vintage. Interestingly, the blend is 90% Sangiovese and 5% each of Canaiolo and Ciliegiolo, which adds depth and flavour. This is a glorious bottle, ready for immediate consumption."
