Chianti Classico di Pruneto is a fresh and accessible red wine with good quality fruit. The Sangiovese in this vintage offers fullness and maturity. In the mouth the wine has hints of sweet berries and a spicy touch of wild spices.
Pruneto is a farm in Radda in Chianti that has always kept well away from fashions and from the easy shortcuts that can be taken in the world of wine.
The soul and heart of Pruneto is Riccardo Lanza who has been inspired by this small part of Chianti for years, giving life to wines with an original character that faithfully reflect the territory and man.
The Pruneto vineyards extend for just over three hectares, arranged along the southern slope of the hill on which the farm rests. The vines are distributed in two different vineyards, the first facing south and the second south-west.
The prevalent grape is obviously Sangiovese, flanked by some rows of Merlot and Canaiolo. The oldest of our vineyards dates back to 1972, while the youngest was planted in 2017. The soils are mainly composed of marl, have a good stony skeleton at a fair depth. The altitude of the vineyards is about 550 m a.s.l.
Anima e cuore di Pruneto è Riccardo Lanza che da questa piccola parte di Chianti si lascia ispirare da anni dando vita a vini dal carattere originale che rispecchiano fedelmente il territorio e l’uomo.
Due le proposte di Riccardo: il Chianti Classico e il Chianti Classico Riserva, entrambi accomunati da sapidità e mineralità. Vini d’antan per chi ricerca i sapori di una volta.
