2016 Pacina La Malena



Pacina is a ‘magic' place!
It’s a living farm with a diverse range of plants, flowers and animals. Pacina is located in Castelnuovo Berardenga, along the ancient road that connected Arezzo and Siena, in the Chianti region of the Colli Senesi. 50% of the blend come from old vines of Syrah, planted by Giovanna grandfather in 1993. The vines found in this chalky soil a perfect harmony and give to the wine this beautiful reminiscences of Northern Rhone Valley wines perfumes and spices. The remaining 50% is Ciliegiolo, from younger vines, used to lift fruit notes and freshness. Fermented for 3 weeks in concrete vats with indigenous yeast, then ages for 15 months in 225 Allier oak barrels. Release after 6 months in bottle without clarification of filtration.
