Quick Facts

A refined and elegant Chianti from the Colli Senesi appellation, this is a great introduction to the mindset of Riccardo Campinoti.

The Wine’s Story

The artist formerly known as ‘Chianti Colli Senesi.’ Riccardo grew annoyed with the DOCG administration as for the second time in eight years the Colli Senesi was turned down DOCG status due to too pale of color. ‘Troncone’ translates to ‘stump’ and it is the nickname given to Riccardo’s grandfather and Ric wanted to honor his grandfather with a wine. It also made sense as there is a large tree stump in the middle of this block thus a bit of a double meaning.
