Notes from North Berkeley Imports:
"Winemaker Diego Finoochi 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.
A step up in intensity and purity. Winemaker Diego Finocchi ages this single-vineyard, 100% Sangiovese wine for two years in traditional oak cask. A perfect example of the cut and poise of high-altitude Chianti Classico from Radda! A delicious, soulful example of the best these mountainside vineyards can give."
