Buccia Nera Tenuta di Campriano Chianti 2018
Buccia Nera (‘black skin’ in Italian) is a family farm located in Campriano, a small village in the heart of Tuscany. The estate was bought by the Family Mancini in 1926 and remains family owned tol this day, with all family members residing on the estate and farming organically.
The 2018 vintage of this wine is 80% Sangiovese with the balance made up with an undeclared mixture of indigineous grapes as well as some Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep dark red core with black tinged edges and a dark red hue. Aromas of red currant and red cherries combine with earthy elements, fresh herbs and spice. Elegant with light to medium body weight, earthy red currant and red cherry fruits are underpinned by vibrant fresh acidity and slightly rustic tannins. Dried herbs and spice are also present. Dryish finish with a medium length conclusion. Perfect midweek pasta or pizza wine.
