Our wines have very little added and nothing taken away.
Winemaking pared down to a minimum.
This is what highly-respected wine writer, Aldo Fiordelli, says about our 2018 Chianti Classico: “An Englishman is in charge of the cellar. His name is Tim Manning and he is one of the best interpreters of post-modern winemaking; his precise winemaking skills in the cellar allowing the land to express itself. He was one of the first to bring whole-bunch fermentation back to Sangiovese. The Montecalvi 2018 is a true Chianti Classico, the likes of which we haven’t tasted in a while, pulpy and juicy but with an evident backbone, earthy and savoury typical of Greve.”

Reviews for VV
Ernesto Gentili has included the VV 2014 in his top ten Sangiovese IGTs available on the market today. He said this about the wine: “Light and transparent in colour, characterised by a graceful floral bouquet, it is very fresh, a thin green thread but elegant and slender in development. Excellent interpretation of the 2014 vintage. 92/100.”
Falstaff Magazine: “Bright, bright ruby red with slightly brick-red edge. Stressed fruity in the nose for fresh raspberries, crunch cherries and juicy strawberries. Elegant and fine on the palate, velvety against the tongue, fruity in the drink, with a long finish. A treat! 94/100.”
