Linea Retta Chianti Riserva DOCG 2019

SKU: LR200A-19

Deep ruby red colour, with a persistent scent of rosehip, red berries and nectarine. The taste is well balanced thanks to its velvety tannins and fine minerality. The finish is long and persistent..

2019 started slowly with humidity and low temperatures. The rainy spring allowed our plants to regulate their water supply throughout the hot and dry summer. The September night/day temperature fluctuations allowed to us to pick perfectly mature grapes in October.

Linea Retta is a winemaking collaboration between two renowned winemakers: Italy’s Giorgio Rivetti and Australia’s Larry Cherubino.

The name ‘Linea Retta’ (an Italian expression that can be translated as ‘in a direct line’) refers to their shared ‘vineyard first’ winemaking philosophies. Larry love’s of Italy in particular the wines of Piedmont meant that when the opportunity arose to collaborate with Giorgio he could not resist. “I have admired Giorgio’s wines from the first time I was introduced to ‘Pin’ in London almost 20 years ago and never thought I would be working with the man himself, so I feel incredibly lucky!” Linea Retta is the result.
