The incredible story of Mr. Beconcini, the winemaker who proved the origins of Tuscan Tempranillo
How did Leonardo Beconcini ended up with Tempranillo? It is not just a fancy choice, a whim of modern viticulture; this decision has deep roots in the history and the tradition of this land.
BECONCINI VITICULTURE PHILOSOPHY
THEIR “SPECIAL” SANGIOVESE
Eva and Leonardo made me a great gift, opening the best of their cellar selection. I had the chance to experience the evolution of their wines with the ageing. We tasted Vigna alle Nicchie 2011 and 2008, and Reciso 2012 and 1997. The 20 years old cru Sangiovese was really a blast. The 2008 Tempranillo was an hymn to complexity and elegance. Also the Chianti and the Chianti Riserva are stunning, in those “simpler” wines you can really appreciate the maniacal work of Leonardo and his staff in the vineyards. Caratello 2007, Vin Santo, was just the right pairing with an amazing homemade nuts and zucchini crostata.
