About Lisini

One of Montalcino’s oldest estates, dating back to the time of the Medicis, Lisini is known more recently
as one of the founding fathers of the Brunello di Montalcino Consorzio of the 1960s. The Clementi-Lisini
family, at the 154-hectare property near Sant’Angelo in Colle (of which 20 hectares are under vine), make a
thoroughly traditional range that builds on ancient Eocene sand, clay and iron-rich soils – wines that were
first bottled in 1967. Oenologist Filippo Paoletti stands guard over the estate’s pre-eminent position.

Appellation: Tuscany

Tuscany (or Toscana) is a large region made up of many significant smaller areas that are known across the world for the level of quality that they produce. Brunello di Montalcino, Bolgheri and Chianti can both be found here as well as the infamous "Super Tuscans".

Grape Type: Sangiovese

Meaning Blood of Jove, or Jupiter, Sangiovese is the noble grape of Chianti, Carmignano, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile de Montpulciano. A fussy grape to grow, but when done properly can produce some of the world’s most enthralling red wines. It can produce lively, sappy young reds with juicy, cherry flavours, as well as more concentrated, long-lived, oak-matured reds with superb, savoury, herb and spice flavours. Quality has soared over the last year as productive clones have been grubbed up and since the old practices of blending it with weak, lean white grape varieties have died down.
