      "Generous, youthful and open, with a core of slightly balsamic blueberry, raspberry and cherry, topped with sage and surging sweet spices." Decanter

      This Riserva is distributed in small runs of 3,000 bottles (0.75l) and 180 magnums to hand-picked retailers.

      Brilliant ruby red. Fine raspberry and floral notes dominate the spicy nose. Very juicy at first, tannins and acidity are well integrated. Riecines Riserva has length and suppleness up to the long fruit finale. Impressive the elegance and the fine melt. This is once again Sangiovese at the top level known from Riecine! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Lustrous mid ruby. Lush cherry fruit with a subtle tangy vein. Quite dramatic and fruit-driven, for now, but with lots of potential." Jancis Robinson

      "Dark berries, mushrooms and fresh flowers follow through to a full body with a tight, layered palate of firm tannins and lively acidity. Very traditional style, yet clean and transparent. Will age well, but why wait?" James Suckling

      "This supple red is graced by ripe cherry, blackberry, tar and iron flavors. Juicy and firm, with terrific balance and a long, expressive finish. Stays fresh and vibrant. Drink now through 2033." Wine Spectator

      "Perfumed floral and moss notes join pure red forest berries. The palate allies appropriate density of fruit with a lightness of texture. Winemaker Alessandro Campatelli has also managed to achieve finessed tannins and succulent acidity." Decanter

    • "La Gioia" Toscana Rosso IGT 2016

      “La Gioia” Toscana Rosso IGT 2016

      Genuine expression of Sangiovese, terroir and the typical Riecine style, which is based above all on elegance. Deep, sparkling colour, complex, animating scent of small red berries and corresponding persistence in taste. An impressive wine with the finesse of a great Sangiovese. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright ruby with a fine garnet shimmer. Appealing nose with notes of pomegranate, cherry and spicy thyme. Round and polished at the base, shows very well worked out fruit, present and at the same time tender, then opens up with lots of handy tannin." Falstaff

      "A pure expression of Sangiovese, the 2016 La Gioia is a beauty. Off the bat, the wine shows a specific mineral note that reminds me of black stone or dusty granite. Beyond that, you get a thick and dense layer of black fruit and plum. The wine is never heavy or flat, instead it shows a lot of energy and freshness with a point of spiciness on the close. That energy is typical of Gaiole in Chianti. This is a medium-to-full bodied Sangiovese with all its various moving parts in harmony, ready for a Tuscan bean and tomato stew with fresh bread and healthy wedges of pecorino." Robert Parker

      "This is a powerful red with beautiful ripe tannins and freshness. Full and linear. Opens in the mouth. A pure sangiovese. Yeah!" James Suckling

    • "Tresette" Merlot Toscana IGT 2016

      “Tresette” Merlot Toscana IGT 2016

      This is the first vintage of the new pure Merlot of the house. The name Tresette is derived from the fact that there will be just 2,800 bottles of this wine, which will be aged in three 700l French oak barrels. The grapes come from old vines from a 480m high plot and it is only vinified in the best years. Tresette is a cool, archetypal Merlot of the very elegant type and is completely in keeping with the style of the house. Juicy blackberry, in the nose clove, herbs and spice notes. Wrapped in smooth tannins, this fresh red leads to a delicious finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "From a vineyard of only 0.7 hectares at 480 metres above sea level, matures for 20 months in 7 hectolitre barrels: Seductive blackberry aroma, underlaid with notes of liquorice; juicy in the mouth, the tannins and acidity in harmony, elegant and polished final. Convincing." Vinum

      " Firm, quite deep, slightly iodine scent of black currant and red berries with herbal aromas, some nuts, blood, black olives and moderate wood spice as well as mineral notes. Firm, ripe, tart, yet extremely juicy fruit, tight, quite fine tannin and a certain acid bite, persistent on the palate, herbal and planty notes, a hint of pepper, clear, salty and chalky minerality, has power, but also freshness and cooling elements, noble spice, very lively, multi-layered and deep, very good, tight, juicy and finely spicy finish. Great." Wein-Plus

      "Named after the Italian card game, the 2016 TreSette (777) is a pure expression of Merlot from old vines. Only 2,800 bottles were made. Riecine's La Gioia once had Merlot in the blend, but it was removed to make this wine instead. This wine offers a generous bouquet with blackcurrant and cherry. However, the high altitudes of the vineyards shape crisp and acidic fruit that is very evident in this slightly cooler vintage." Robert Parker

      "This is a pretty wild and amazing on the nose with crystal-clear aromas of lavender, before the bay leaves, Thai basil, cloves and a touch of vanilla come into play. Medium to full body, incredibly edgy acidity and layer after layer of pure blue fruits. An outstanding wine with few parallels in Italy. One of a kind." James Suckling

    About the winemakersRiecineTuscany | Chianti
    Riecine

    The Riecine winery is one of the pearls of Chianti Classico and has become a legend after just 40 years. In the year 1112 the name was probably mentioned for the first time in a document of the nearby monastery. It took until 1971 before the late Briton John Dunkley bought the property with a piece of land above Gaiole. He brought the first bottled wine to the market seven years later. He immediately became a success.

    Dunkley, who was regarded as an advocate of the highest quality standards, quickly brought his property to world fame. In 1996, the Riecine estate became the property of the American Gary J. Baumann, who sold it 16 years later to a family of investors who did not wish to be named.

    Riecine stands for very authentic and genuine wines of the region. From a stylistic point of view, the estate, with its well-founded classical approach, occupies an exceptional position in Tuscany. The enormous success is above all due to the farsightedness of the oenologist and production manager Sean O'Callaghan. He has developed a personal style that does not always fully correspond to the Chianti tradition, but is innovative.

    Sangiovese is the only grape variety used, and its successor, the world-famous oenologist Carlo Ferrini (from 2017), remains faithful to it. Riecine's grape material is of the highest quality. When processing the berries, sensitive interpretation is more important than sober technical know-how. The results of this loving work are graceful delicacies offered at fair prices, free from fashionable overripe flavours, fat fruit or dry tannins. The wines are therefore celebrated again and again by the specialist press.

    The biodynamic vineyards are located in different areas of Chianti Classico. Some vineyards are located just behind the winery, others are in Vertine and La Casina, or are already part of Montecucco. Following the purchase of land from neighbouring estates in spring 2013 and the letting of some vineyards, 15 hectares of vineyards are currently being used for production at Riecine Estate.

    "With competence and prudence Sean O'Callaghan [...] has set up an elite vine school here with an affiliated wine-making centre, from which Sangiovese champs full of character regularly emerge."Gambero Rosso
