Posted by Joe Salamone

We have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the 2021 Le Trame.

Boncie is producing some of our favorite expressions of Sangiovese, and the 2021 vintage is a beautiful, utterly classic vintage in Chianti.

Since the 2004 vintage, Le Trame has been one of the two or three expressions of the Chianti region that we hold in the highest regard. It's a wine that dramatizes how great Sangiovese from Chianti Classico can be. It takes purity and soulfulness to the extreme.

Le Trame is a seriously complicated 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 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 2021 Le Trame is a wine of spectacular aromatics and energy. You get plenty of finesse. 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 an extraordinary expression of the Sangiovese grape. Its purity, individual personality, and overall architecture can't be denied.
