This standard-setting Tuscan estate turns out classically structured Chianti made chiefly from organically grown grapes.
What You Need To Know
A former monastery, this important Chianti Classico estate is devoted now to the secular pursuit of great wine and food. Its present owner, the debonair Piero Stucchi Prinetti, descends from a Florentine banker who bought the vast property in 1846. He and his wife, culinary authority Lorenza de’ Medici, have converted part of the property into a hotel and cooking school, and they bottle phenomenal olive oils from the estate. But its chief claim to fame is its wines, including fragrant, traditionally styled reds based on Sangiovese, Chianti’s signature grape. This well-known riserva bottling is made from a small selection of the best barrels of the vintage and ages for at least two years before release.
