MEET THE WINEMAKER
in association with Raeburn Wines
FRIDAY 4 DECEMBER 2020 6.30PM
VALLONE DI CECIONE
Chianti Classico, Tuscany
Vallone di Cecione is a small family estate based in the beautiful Tuscan hills near Panzano in the heart of Chianti Classico Gallo Nero area. It is owned and run by winemaker Francesco Anichini who will be joining us for the virtual tasting to talk through his wines.
Francesco & his parents own 8 hectares - with 4 hectares of vineyards and 4 hectares of olive trees (700 trees!). Their small plots are based in the splendid 'Conca d'Oro di Panzano': a valley so-called for its sun exposure and special soils based at 460m altitude.
He uses organic & biodynamic methods in his vineyards to tend his low yielding old vines. In the winery he uses wild yeast fermentation and traditional low intervention winemaking with no additives. Francesco is keen on reviving indigenous grape varieties, particularly Canaiolo which he thinks is a very special historic Tuscan grape.
Francesco Anichini, who has been running the family estate since 2001, will join us to taste through four mature examples of his red wines:
- Chianti Classico 2016
- Canaiolo 2015
- Malvasia Nera 2017
- Campo dell'Orzo 2016
