The RISECCOLI Chianti Classico is a true representation of the estate’s terroir. The wine will continue to develop complexity with cellaring.

Tenuta di Riseccoli has been a family-owned winery since 1902 and are one of Italy's oldest family-owned wineries. The wineries top wines made from a range of Italian and 'international' wines has contributed to establishing this estate’s reputation at the forefront of Italy’s boutique wineries.

"The RISECCOLI estate and our wines tell a story beginning in the early 20th century when renowned Florentine artist Prof. Romano Romanelli (1882-1969) acquired the land, villas, vines and olive groves in the hills above Greve in Chianti.

Coming from a line of artists and mainly known as a member of the prestigious Florence Academy of Art, Professor Romanelli had a comparable interest in agriculture and viticulture.

In those days, friends of the Romanelli family were among the fortunate few to enjoy the fine wines and extra-virgin olive oil from the RISECCOLI estate.

Over the years the circle of RISECCOLI wine lovers grew as the Romanelli family embarked on several viticultural studies and experiments, always aiming to bring to life wines representative of the terroir and the Tuscan winemaking tradition.

The winery is still in the family and the next generations continue with the same passion as Professor Romanelli and the belief that the finest examples of Chianti Classico wines are crafted and produced in smaller parcels." Riseccoli
