Cavesa le CAVE, le club des amateurs de vins exquis

IGT Toscana, Montedesassi, Il Borghetto - 2017

From the light, brilliant colour, we enter straight into the heart of this artist-winemaker's style; the nose is racy, with spices, cherries and dried flowers. The palate extends this pleasure with a dreamy texture, incredibly suave and elegant, refined by an artist's breeding. Don't drink it too quickly; it will reveal itself with aeration and age wonderfully!

In 1982, Roberto Cavallini and his wife Rosie acquired an estate in the heart of Chianti Classico. They restored the 15th century buildings in the village of Monte Ridol. The property covers 32 hectares, of which nearly 6 are devoted to vineyards. A few years later, their son Antonio decided to transform the outbuildings into an agriturismo and to dedicate himself to the management of the winery. After replanting the entire vineyard in 1999, he produced his first wines in 2003. The following year, he called on Tim Manning, an English oenologist with a passion for Pinot Noir and who had made his mark in Burgundy (Dujac), New Zealand and Oregon (Cristom). Until his recent departure, he instilled his philosophy and working methods in Antonio Cavallini: "manual" and parcel-based vinification, fermentation in small volumes, in whole bunches, with indigenous yeasts, and ageing in French barrels. In addition to the winemaking methods, the vineyard is entirely organic.
