Le Lucciole is an elevated version of Predappio, sourcing from the 0.8 hectare parcel of Raggio Brusa vineyard. Perched at the lofty altitude of 350 meters, this vineyard is unique in its East-facing situation and poor soils. 100% Sangiovese, this is a very special Italian born-and-bred wine of sensational quality.

The 2018 is a genuine representation of the gracefully balanced vintage. While it offers a welcoming freshness and acidity, there is also a superb concentration to support the wine to cellar in the long term. Production is ultra-limited, only 5,000 bottles were produced.

About Chiara Condello

Making her debut in 2015, Condello founded her eponymous wine project in Predappio, a village found within Emilia-Romagna rising to prominence for a unique sedimentary soil called “spungone”. Overseeing just 4.8 hectares of organically grown Sangiovese vines, she produces no more than 3,330 cases of wines annually. 

 

One of the most exciting new producers in Romagna” in the eyes of Eric Guido (Vinous), Chiara Condello is a young maverick winemaker in Emilia-Romagna who is fast building a stellar reputation with her pure and expressive Sangiovese portfolio. 

 

Driven by her bright-eyed enthusiasm and a clear vision of what Sangiovese should be, her wines are wonderfully pure and expressive, richly textured and deeply layered. Already proving to be very popular among the world’s best sommeliers, her wines are heavily allocated to Michelin starred restaurants in France and the UK, “wowing Sangiovese lovers around the world”. 

 

The Wines

A refined and aromatic red, Romagna Sangiovese di Predappio is a pure Sangiovese sourced from three 40-year-old parcels between 150m and 350m altitude. Chiara follows a minimal intervention approach, using natural yeast only during fermentation. The wine was aged in Slavonian botti for 1-year before release.

 

Le Lucciole Riserva is sourced from a miniscule 0.8 hectare parcel of vines in the heart of Chiara’s holdings. 100% Sangiovese, this is a very special Italian “born-and-bred" wine of sensational quality. Perched at the lofty altitude of 350 meters, this vineyard is unique in its East-facing situation and poor soils (for anything except Sangiovese!).
