Tenute Piccini knows what to do with those quality grapes. The winery’s impressive pursuit of quality is what’s led it to quickly become one of Chianti's favorite estates. Wine Enthusiast praises Piccini, saying it’s "one of the most dynamic and innovative wineries in Italy today.

In 1882, Angiolo Piccini started with a small estate of a little more than 17 acres of vineyards. He passed down his philosophy to future generations: It doesn’t matter how much you do, but how much passion you put in what you do. Passion is the backbone of Tenute Piccini. As the family acquired more vineyards over the decades, they’ve grown to own five family estates. Today, with over 140 years of winemaking experience,Piccini’s passion for quality and authenticity has given the winery a name that is one of the best-known in Tuscany.

That experience expresses itself in this classic Chianti that’s a blend of 90% Sangiovese, 5% Ciliegiolo, and 5% Canaiolo. Open a bottle with family or friends around the dinner table, and it’s sure to make the meal extra special.
