Supremely Graceful Sangiovese:
2018 Boncie Rosso di Toscana Le Trame

Posted by Joe Salamone

Le Trame is Sangiovese exactly as we like it.

Over the years, this is a bottle that gained a cult following at Crush. We first tasted the 2004 and were blown away by the wine. 

It's hard not to be taken by the harmony and elegance of the wine. Le Trame is one of the most nuanced examples of Sangiovese that we know; evolving for hours in the glass, seeming to reveal another evocative wrinkle of complexity with each smell and taste.

Today, we're very happy to offer Boncie's 2018 Le Trame for $52.95 and $47.95 in 4-packs.

The 2018 Le Trame is a stunning example of the wine offering incredible finesse and purity. It's been a while since we've seen a vintage of Le Trame that combines deliciousness with such precision and lift. There's a silky texture and radiant core of earth, spice, and pristine cherry fruit.

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.

The Le Trame is a compelling, multifaceted, and personality-filled bottle. In short, it is the real deal and a bold example of how great Sangiovese from Chianti Classico can be.
