Eva and Leo produce wines in the hills around San Miniato, to the west of Florence. The area lies within the Chianti DOCG, but this really only plays a small part in their viticultural endeavours, favouring vineyard blends and varietal expression in their wines. The estate has a fabulous array of aspects and soils, and even have a small (and genuine) parcel of old vine Tempranillo that they use in the blend IXE an indulgent and richly formed wine that has a flavour of Tuscany as much as it does Tempranillo. Maurleo is a wonderfully aromatic blend of Sangiovese and Malvasia Nero, which is light footed and beautifully proportioned, losing none of the characters of either varietal, only melding them perfectly. Antiche Vie is delicious, toothsome and savoury Chianti brimming with cherry fruit and smoky tang. The Riserva is produced from older vines, 100% Sangiovese, and aged in Slovakian oak barrels for 12 months.
