Chianti Riserva, Majnoni Guicciardini 2016

Majnoni Guicciardini

Majnoni Guicciardini

  • Italy
This 200 hectare estate has belonged to the Guicciardini family since 1870. Now run by the charismatic Pietro Majnoni, it holds about 30 hectares planted with 8 different grape varieties (mostly Sangiovese), along with olive groves and beautiful woodland. The vineyards are the true beating heart of this estate, which converted to organic methods in 2001, and is cared for by Pietro's team of loyal workers who tend and harvest the grapes by hand. Each plot is fermented separately and matured in the estate's ancient cellars. With so much overripe and over-extracted Chianti on the market, we are very happy to have found wines that are authentic expressions of traditional Chianti: rustic and charming with balanced fruit and great drinkability.
