Description

From Panzano’s Conca d’ Oro, the “golden basin”, considered a prime vineyard location of the Chianti Classico.  This is a great vintage, but even if off years, always one of my favorites.  Beguiling aromas are alone worth the price of admission.  Excellent aging potential.  Brilliant!  100% Sangiovese!  Rarely found.

As always, proprietors Luca and Valeria Orsini focus on sustainable farming practices and a minimalist approach in the cellar.  The Cinciole wines are remarkably pure and nuanced, not to mention incredibly delicious.” – 96 points, Antonio Galloni “I can’t recommend them highly enough.”

Petresco is born in the vineyard and for over twenty years is our historical and careful selection of Sangiovese grapes from a single vineyard placed in a top position compared to the other vineyards; the vineyard is located between 470/480 msl. Vinified in a natural way by spontaneous fermentation in cement vats, after the racking continues its elevation in small French oak barrels where it performs malo-lactic fermentation and then continues its refinement for about 24 months. Then it lays again in cement vats before being bottled and then long refined in the bottle.
