Product Overview

Product reviews
The Le Miccine estate is located in the heart of the Chianti Classico region between the towns of Radda and Gaiole. The 7 hectares of vineyards are farmed organically and owner/winemaker Paula is equally exacting in her management of all facets of the winery and business. These are real, handcrafted, artisanal wines from hillside vineyards in one of the most sought after Classico sub zones. Terroir here is light and the altitude contributes to the cool microclimate that is essential in producing mature, ripe Sangiovese. Her aim is to produce wines representing the traditional Tuscan varieties in isolation.

The Carduus 2011 is 100% Merlot (prior to Paula owning the estate this fruit made its way into the Chianti). Only three barrels are made using French oak (225l & 350l,
1st-3rd passage) for the aging. It is big and bold and has subsumed all the oak over its 24 months affinamento into its spicy, plummy & dense bouquet. Named after
the Latin word for thistle to reflect Paula’s part-Scottish heritage this is a SuperTuscan without the super price tag. Frost early in the 2012 & 2013 vintages has meant that this will be the last Carduus until the 2014 is released.
83 cases made.
