Riecine, Palmina Rosé, Chianti, IGT, Tuscany, Italy, 2022

Producer Profile

Riecine has always followed a pioneering path, defining a new style and approach in this classic region.

Founded by Englishman John Dunkley, and today run by the Frank family, the estate is committed to a natural approach in winemaking. Certified organic and following biodynamic processes, the land is gently nurtured with plants, flowers, and grasses encouraged to flourish. This is to promote vineyard diversity and the health of the land. Closely monitored pickers select only the best, ripest and cleanest bunches from the vines; everything else remains in the fields to return to the earth. With winemaking in the skilled hands of Alessandro Campatelli, low sulphur additions, natural yeasts and long fermentation are de rigeur, as wines are gently coaxed into the world. Adhering strictly to the belief in Sangiovese and indigenous varietals, these incredible wines are honest examples of that overused phrase 'a true sense of place'.


This delicious rosé wine is now certified as organic. The fruit comes from ICEA organically certified vineyards with the 45 year old vines planted on limestone and clay, double guyot pruned. Harvested "green" around 25 days before the rest of the vintage.


Harvested by hand, and sorted on a vibrating sorting table, destemmed, maceration in Nomblot concrete tank (55hl), fermented with indigeneous yeast at 15° C for 40 days with crushing downs & pumping overs.

Oak Ageing

No oak ageing

Tasting Note

A light and fruity palate, supported by good structure, acidity and grape tannins, all in perfect balance. Lovely citric acidity with fruity notes of strawberry and peach.

Food Matching

Suprisingly good with mediterranean cuisine and a little bit of spice such as tajine and pastilla.
