Piandaccoli Pugnitello dei Rinascimento


The estate began with the cultivation of vineyards by monks in 1100, before the phylloxera epidemic that hit Europe in the mid-nineteenth century wiped out the indigenous varietals present in Tuscany. Piandaccoli emerges in 1950 with the production of Chianti, but it was the vision of Dr. Giampaolo Bruni that set the stage for this incredible winery's future. He collaborated with the University of Florence, using DNA testing on grapes found in the Medici tombs, to reintroduce autochthonous varietals prevalent during the Italian Renaissance. Grown in the Cru "Sasseta" vineyards at 220 meters above sea level, with South-West exposure and medium-textured soils which are rich in river stones. Intense ruby red color with marked garnet reflections. Ripe berries, but also cherry, tobacco and licorice stand out on the nose. Noticeable fruitiness that turns into black cherry jam and black pepper. Good acidity that will give it good aging potential. 100% Pugnitello
