Lanciola, located in Impruneta, just outside of Florence, is a very old property. It was at one time in the hands of the noble Ricci family, great rivals to the Medici’s during the glorious age of the Renaissance. Even then, the estate made wines, and it is, in fact, the Ricci family crest which adorns the Lancoila labels today.
Established by the Guarnieri family in the early ‘70’s, they have always been committed to producing the best quality wines within the Colli Fiorentini sub zone of Chianti, and extended that vision with the acquisition of a property in the Chianti Classico zone, called Le Masse di Greve, which is the source vineyard for the new, single vineyard designated Chianti Classico Gran Selezione.
“This is a rare opportunity to meet this incredible wine maker,” says Paesano Wine Director, AlanCollins. “He is a very busy man and makes few trips to the States. We are thrilled to have him here bring 10 wines, (yes 10) along with my colleague and friend, Chaad Thomas.”
