Cinciole

Panzano in Chianti

Panzano is in the Firenze district, within the Grieve subzone of Chianti Classico.

In 1995 the dream of a wholly organic subzone was proposed; it started with 3 producers, Cinciole being one of them.  The area is now 90% BIO (organic).

Luca and Valeria arrived at Podere Le Cinciole in 1991 from Milano, where they had previously worked together in Valeria’s family business.
The vineyard is ten hectares, nine of Sangiovese and one of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot, the average yield is just 40hl/ha.
Their first harvest was in 1992
