"Le Cinciole's 2013 Chianti Classico is a very pretty, delicate, mid-weight wine. Lifted and gracious in style, the 2013 will drink nicely for at least the next few years. Crushed flowers, sweet red fruit, cherry pit and spices add lovely shades of nuance throughout. This is a very pretty, understated Chianti Classico from Le Cinciole."

About the Producer
"The estate has an extension of 30 hectares at an altitude of 400-450 mts on the sea level, it was bought by the present owners in 1991, who renovated the cellars, that had originally been built in order to sell the wine to "negociants". Valeria Vigan and Luca Orsini also personally run Le Cinciole. The vineyard extension is presently thirteen hectares of vineyards, of which eleven are actually in production. The principal aim of Valeria and Luca has always been the search for quality which respects traditions and territory. What characterizes their philosophy is the choice of using mainly Sangiovese to make Chianti Classico, with a moderate use of wood in order to respect the nature of the grape. The estate started the conversion phase to organic viticulture in 2002 and official certification was obtained in 2005. Starting from the 2009 vintage the estate is also certified by C.O.R. (a Canadian certification body). This certification is comparable to the US NOP certification and is accepted in the US." - Importer
