Boutique Wines

The agricultural enterprise Giovanni Chiappini is situated in the heart of the DOC Bolgheri zone at the Via Bolgherese, the road where the most important wine estates of the Bolgheri region are located.

The story of this enterprise tells us about the consistently renewed family tradition of the head of the family, Giovanni Chiappini, son of farmers that had moved from the Marche to the Bolgheri region in the fifties. This tradition was inherited by the two daughters Martina and Lisa who assist their father in the work on the estate. The particular difference in the work and the growth of the Chiappini family is found in their special connection to the soil, interpreted as mother earth and cultivated in a symbiosis with the working power.

An alliance at all times vital and never detrimental. In the course of time the enterprise gained worldwide prominence and recognition, especially because of the positive ratings of the most important wine guides like the Wine Enthusiast, where in 2013 the main wine of Chiappini – Guado de’ Gemoli 2009 – was set on the first place of the world ranking list with the maximum of 100/100.

Chiappini

2012 Liena Cabernet Franc

100% Cabernet Franc from one of the best places in the world to grow Cabernet Franc.

92 Points - Robert Parker

The 2012 Cabernet Franc Liena is a full-throttle expression with dark fruit tones and loads of dark berry intensity. The wine is brooding and muscular with broad shoulders, dark mineral notes, dried cherry fruit and moist tobacco. It delivers dense concentrate with thick layers of dark fruit intensity that builds slowly in momentum.

2013 Guado de'Gemoli

94 Points - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

The 2013 Guado de'Gemoli is the prototypical Bolgheri red. Flamboyant and generous, yet also super-refined, the 2013 is sumptuous and deeply expressive from the first taste. Raspberry jam, sweet spice and new French oak are front and center.

93 Points - James Suckling

A dense and fruity red with chocolate, berry and hints of rust. Plenty of soil character. Full body, chewy tannins and a flavourful finish. Will soften over the next two to three years

2015 Ferruggini

50% Sangiovese, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah. Very approachable young, spicy pepper notes from the Syrah really give this wine a lift. Brilliant with traditional Tuscan cuisine.

Ruby red in colour, sweet notes of pepper, spice, raspberry and red currants, this wine from the younger vines is excellent value. Enjoyable immediately
