Boncie is producing some of our favorite expressions of Sangiovese.
Every time we open a bottle of the Le Trame, we're blown away.
The Le Trame is a seriously compelling, multifaceted, and personality-filled bottle. In short, Le Trame is the real deal, a bold example of how great Sangiovese from Chianti Classico can be.
Today, we're very happy to offer the 2017 Le Trame for $51.95 per bottle and $47.95 in 4-packs.
Le Trame is an insanely nuanced wine and evolves for hours in the glass, seeming to reveal another evocative wrinkle of complexity with each smell and taste. It's hard not to be taken by the harmony and sheer thrust and elegance of the wine.
It's this beautifully composed combination of intensity and finesse that defines the Le Trame. It's very easy to imagine Le Trame aging amazingly well for decades.
The 2017 Le Trame dramatizes the power and class that the wine possesses. The added punch and layers of dark fruits give you the impression of the ripe vintage. Still, you get plenty of the finesse that we just spoke of along with a luminous undercurrent of energy and high-tone floral notes. You get a really impressive presentation of honesty, complexity, and purity of terroir.
Boncie is located in San Felice in the southern part of the Chianti Classico appellation, not very far from the great Castell'in Villa. It's very clear that this is one of the great terroirs of the zone. Boncie's Giovanna Morganti was given a farm by her father, who was a famous enologist in the area, and she set to planting 3ha in high density with mostly Sangiovese along with tiny amounts of Ciliegiolo, Colorino, Foglia Tonda and Mammolo. The vines are tended following biodynamic principles.
Le Trame is clearly an important wine. The wine's purity, individual personality, and overall architecture can't be denied. This is a don't miss.
