Importer notes from North Berkeley Imports:
"Winemaker Diego Finocchi is a one-man winery, caring for 12 acres of “mountain” Sangiovese amid the wooded hills and steeply graded valleys of Radda in Chianti, the heart of the Chianti Classico zone. A trained enologist and native son who established his estate in 2006, Diego seeks to “make wines that are as faithful as possible” to the true character of Radda. That essence—stony and pure, brimming with bright fruit and lively acid, tailor-made for fine cuisine—is what you’ll find in each bottle of Diego’s organically raised wines."
Finocchi's Toscana Bianco is a traditional Tuscan field blend of Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia, harvested and fermented together. They are grown in the village of Radda, at the edge of the Chianti Classico subzone. Winemaking is deliberately simple with this cuvee: briefly aged in stainless steel, there is no oak aging or extended lees contact prior to release. The intention is to highlight the zesty citrus fruit profile of the Trebbiano, and the elegant, floral aromas of the Malvasia grape.
