Tasting Notes

93 points – Robert

“Just 4,000 bottles made in this vintage – aged for 24 months in old tonneau to minimise the influence of oak. This a concentrated, elegant wine, quite taught and mineral with seamless tannins. Very plush and balanced with a long Finish”

Property Information

Riecine has always followed a particular path whoever has been in charge. Founded by Englishman John Dunkley, and today run by the Frank family, the estate is committed to a natural approach. Certified organic and following biodynamic processes the land is gently nurtured with plants, flowers and grasses encouraged to flourish. This is all to promote vineyard diversity and the health of the land. Closely monitored pickers select only the best, ripest and cleanest bunches from the vines; everything else remains in the fields to return to the earth. With low sulphur additions, natural yeasts and long fermentation the wines are gently coaxed into the world. Adhering strictly to the belief in Sangiovese as the only variety that should be used, these incredible wines are honest examples of that over used phrase 'a true sense of place'.
