    Le Filigare is definitely among the cream of the crop in Chianti and the 2013 "Lorenzo" reminds us why. It offers complexity, depth, rich fruit, balanced acidity, fine integrated tannins and freshness to boot. It's delicious from start to finish with just a hint of new oak that never intrudes. The "Lorenzo" is one of the best Chiantis I've tasted in some time.

    In this wine you will find black cherries, plum with minerals and a touch of chestnuts on the finish. Medium-bodied with soft tannins, this is a very user-friendly Chianti that will show well with the pizza and pasta.

    What a delightful full-bodied Chianti that has all the richness of dark cherry but never loses its wonderful focus! It's bright and has great length, freshness and purity of perfectly ripened Sangiovese. Delicious and approachable wine to enjoy it on its own, but it will also complement any grilled meats or pecorino cheese.

    If you are newer to Tuscan wines, this Chianti Classico is a great place to start. The riper, fuller vintage of 2013 shows beautifully in the fleshy, juicy fruit of this balanced wine. The dusty tannins and active acidity gracefully lead into a beautiful deep plum finish. A perfect pairing for grilled summer meats!

    Le Filigare is just a little west of Panzano in San Donato in Poggio, the center-western portion of Chianti Classico. From the moment I put my nose in the glass this wine just exploded, ripe wild cherry, spice, bits of earth but all couched in a inviting sweetness that makes you want to taste it! On the palate that sweet luxurious nature slides across your palate but then…what’s that structure, balance, focus…wow, what a combination. The palate flavors are a complex fruit compote laced with violet and lilac with hints of sage that all play out toward the finish. The Lorenzo is 100% Sangiovese; it shows the ripeness of the 2013 vintage but is exceptionally balanced, long, long finish, you’re going to love it!
