Chiara Condello

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!).

Chiara Condello Le Lucciole Riserva 2015 (1x150cl)

Vinous (92)

Chiara Condello's 2015 Le Lucciole Riserva shows some hints of the warmer vintage, making it a bit easier to enjoy at this youthful stage – certainly not a bad thing. The nose shows ripe strawberries offset by white smoke, savory herbal tones and dusty soil, and sweet florals develop in the glass. On the palate, cool-toned, silky textures showcase sour red berries with a wild and spicy persona, giving way to a mix of acid, minerals and tannin that cascades across the senses. The finish is long, yet also full of energy; as the mouth waters for another sip, remnants of tart fruit and minerals resonate throughout. The 2015 is a perfect candidate to check in on early as we forget the 2016s in our cellars for a few years.

Chiara Condello Le Lucciole Riserva 2016 (1x150cl)

Vinous (94)

Sourced from a small parcel within Chiara Condello's vineyard, which is unique for its east-facing exposition and poor soils, the incredibly elegant and refined 2016 Le Lucciole Riserva really leaves an impression. Here I'm finding a remarkably fresh and cool-toned expression, displaying dusty ripe cherry, smoke and sweet red florals, grounded by a hint of animal muskiness. On the palate, textures of pure silk release tart cherries brought to life by vibrant acids, as saline-minerals saturate the senses and hints of fine tannin add balance. The finish is long, displaying mineral-laden bright red fruits, kept in motion by lingering acids, while hints of fine tannin persist in this classically structured Sangiovese. Elegance personified.
