Le Cinciole. Chianti Classico Riserva 'Aluigi'

Le Cinciole. Chianti Classico Riserva 'Aluigi'

Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 
Grape: Sangiovese 

2015 was the last vintage of the riserva before Luca chose the Aluigi to be his Gran Selezione.  Big open fruit, laced with cinnamon and almond, bright and crunchy, a single vineyard wine that is matured in one large botti. 14%

Following our summer Tuscany and Central Italy tasting at St John's Smith Square, we now have a vertical tasting offer for you to enjoy comparing the different vintages and the change in style with the advent of Gran Selezione:
consisting of
Le Cinciole. Chianti Classico Riserva 'Aluigi 2015

Le Cinciole producer page

A fantastic high-altitude, single vineyard Chianti Classico Riserva named after Valeria's father, Luigi.
The vines are harvested by hand and the bunches de-stemmed and sorted before a spontaneous fermentation in concrete tanks. Ageing was in a 20hl botti.

Their adoption of Gran Selezione gave me a bit of a shock, Luca has not looked kindly on the ‘Gran Selezione’ category in the past: the rules were too close to those applied to a Riserva and less conscientious producers changed little but the name to inflate their prices.  In 2016 tighter regulations came in and Luca and Valeria joined the party, and it was a spectacular year to open with.
