Le Calvane Quercione Chianti

Le Calvane Quercione Chianti 2016

Tuscany, ItalyVilla Le Calvane sits on the hills of the Montagnana Val di Pesa just outside of Florence. The style is fresh with bright florals and juicy red fruit aromas. On the palate, bright cherry fruit mixes with a savoury spice undercurrent and a light dusting of vanilla and oak. Le Calvane wine production dates to 1427. In 2011 a small group of international entrepreneurs purchased the property and set about to restore some lustre to this Tuscan legend. A simple, well made Chianti, from an excellent vintage under $20, has to be welcomed in this market.Tasted: 24 July 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 19.99 private wine stores ON 14.95 LCBO Producer: Fattoria Di Vicchio SarlDistributors: Patagonia Imports Ltd.
