La Ginestra - Sant' Ellero Bianco 2020
Region: Chianti / Tuscany
Richly flavoured but not heavy. Notes of ripe apple and orchard fruits alongside notes of honey and spiced nuts. Finishes freshy and almost salty. Well worth a try and very tasty alongside chicken and port.
La Ginestra’s history is a utopian dream: In 1978 a group of young Tuscans began to restore an abandoned farm 20km south of Florence. They first produced grains and goats milk and cheese. In 1986 new members of the co-op introduced bees and olive trees and the first vines were planted in the ‘90s. Certified organic in 1989, they went on to introduce indigenous yeasts and a low intervention approach to wine-making in 2012.

the grapes in their natural transformation into wine
