This Chianti hits different.
Podere Giocoli’s Chianti “Diamne” is composed of Sangiovese vines that were planted on a mixture of sandstone, clay and limestone soils in 1975. The fruit was Organically farmed without any chemicals prior to vinification and bottled in the traditional fiasco. Chianti Diamine is a savory, mineral expression of Sangiovese that conjures up nostalgia for simpler times: liquid Italian comfort food.
- Marco Cannoni was just twelve years old when he rode his first tractors through his family’s vineyards, and took the helm of Podere Giocoli in 1998.
- Prior to Marco taking over operations at the property, the fruit was sold off to growers.
- Marco has been tending the 8.2 hectares of Sangiovese, Trebbiano, Canaiolo, Colorino and Malvasia with minimal chemical intervention.
- Fiaschi - the straw flasks covering Chianti bottles - are used to make sure the glass doesn’t break during transport.
- “Chef’s Table – Pizza” marathon on Netflix.
- Eating an entire bag of garlic knots.
- Using the bottle as a candle holder and letting the wax drip down.
