Product Overview

Product reviews
Exceptional and uncompromising organic and biodynamic winery, the Gigloli–Rinaldi family can trace their Vinous presence in the zone back to 1770. This is quintessential Tuscany halfway between Firenze & San Gimignano and next to Bocaccio’s birthplace. This is traditional in all the best senses with no whiff of modernity and its natural practices rooted in time rather than fashion.

The Chiantis are almost 100% Sangiovese (much of it from 45 year old vines, some over a century) with the addition of a dash each of Canaiolo & Colorino and sit amongst the purest expressions of the grape. The estate champions low intervention methods and patient, long aging times to focus the wines’ textural tannins and fruit yet always remain exquisitely fresh. Each vintage will undergo a different aging regime - sometimes part chestnut botte, sometimes some concrete but only ever in large format never in barre - and the 2011 was fermented an aged in stainess steel & concrete vat to retain the subtlety of the outstanding grapes. All these wines are extremely limited.
