Podere Le Boncie Cinque Rosso di Toscana 2018
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
|Brand||Podere Le Boncie|
Although this wine is no longer composed of the 5 grapes that gave it its name, Giovanna notes that grape vines have five leaves and flowers per bunch, that their house address is number 5, and that in Italian school you are graded one to ten, with 5 not quite passing - a bit of ironic understatement in reference to one of the elite wines of Tuscany. Il Cinque is perhaps less formidably structured than the Le Trame but it is no less noble, carrying its mantle of the particular terroir borne of the hills surrounding Castelnuovo Berardenga, wines of vigor and cut that chant the song of Sangiovese.
