Winery Details

    Chiara Condello is proving a popular name among Michelin restaurant lists in France with her delicate and finely perfumed Sangiovese Piccolo wines. She grew up in the town of Predappio right near the resort and winery of Condé, owned by her father Francesco. The project under her own name, created with beautifully modern labels, is from a small parcel of land she chose from her father's estate, close to a forest where the vines are deeply rooted in calcareous-clay soil, prime for Sangiovese. Chiara is driven by a deep respect for the land and has followed the path of organic viticulture and handcrafting her wines with indigenous yeasts, gravity-fed tanks and without filtration.

    Italy’s Best-Kept Secrets: By Eric Guido, Vinous (June 2020)

    “Centered in the province of Forli, a new focus on terroir is emerging in Predappio, where we find Chiara Condello, who after only three vintages is already wowing Sangiovese lovers around the world. Here we are in the foothills of the Apennines, with sedimentary soils consisting of a unique formation of marine origin named spungone, made up of calcareous sandstone with large, porous seashells strewn throughout. The most interesting part is that these hillside vineyards have existed for decades; it simply took a new way of thinking to bring them to life. After 15 years of reading about the potential of Sangiovese in Romagna, I’m happy to report that today it has finally been realized within the region itself.”

Press Review

    Raspberry, cherry, chipotle mole, green tea and liquorice. It’s medium-bodied, spicy, savoury, red fruited, a stony chew to tannin, a slight prune character, though mitigated by fresh acidity, with a long finish offering a pleasant bitterness and nutty flavours. A super expression of Sangiovese.
