Borgo Salcetino was established in 1996 when Valneo and Tonino Livon, two Friulan winemakers decided to spread their skills in winemaking to the Chianti Classico area, precisely to Radda in Chianti.
The estate comprises 30 hectares, half of which are dedicated to wine growing. An important gradual renovation of the vineyards has been carried out, which included reaching a density of 7000 plants per hectare, and improving the quality of the vines, and integrating the current native Sangiovese and Canaiolo with an experimental Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The winery and cellars have also undergone extensive renovations in terms of technology but have maintained the original local characteristics. Wonderful underground cellars house the oak barrels in which the Chianti Classico, Chianti Classico Riserva wines and Rossole age to perfection.
2011 Chianti Classico DOCG Riserva - Lucarello
90% Sangiovese & 10% Canaiolo
The 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo grapes are fermented and aged in oak for up to three years from harvest. Deep ruby-garnet red in colour and highly perfumed with red fruit aromas, Lucarello is harmonious in its well-structured and balanced flavours of berry, and cherry. A touch of spice and cedar can be detected on the palate. Sweet, soft and supple. A very long finish.
It is particularly well suited to game and red meat dishes with spicy and full flavours; and with soft cheeses.
2011 Chianti Classico DOCG Riserva - Lucarello - Magnum
2015 Chianti Classico DOCG
95% Sangiovese & 5% Canaiolo
The low production and high quality per hectare of the 95% Sangiovese and 5% Canaiolo grapes produced a structured, well-balanced and ample wine dominated by red fruit (cherry and raspberry) aromas and flavours with a long velvety tannin finish. It is a wine particularly well suited with game and red meat dishes of spicy and full flavours; also very good with soft cheeses.
