About Pietro Beconcini
Eva and Leo produce wines in the hills around San Miniato, to the west of Florence. The area lies within the Chianti DOCG, but this really only plays a small part in their viticultural endeavours, favouring vineyard blends and varietal expression in their wines. The estate has a fabulous array of aspects and soils, and even have a small (and genuine) parcel of old vine Tempranillo.
This is is a refreshing vibrant style of Chianti. Bright red cherries with floral notes of violets. Fresh acidity and well rounded tannins make this a lighter style Chianti at its best young.
