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 | JUNE 25, 2020 (VINOUS)

    “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.”

    Beautiful expression of Sangiovese here. So unforced. Cherry, hazelnuts, a little spice and dried herb. It’s medium-bodied, fresh, yet has this toothsome choc-hazelnut appeal, open knit chamois-like tannin offering more chew, maybe some wild strawberry and amaro too, and a finish that’s satisfying, savoury and gently fruit-sweet at once. A beautiful thing to drink. From Emilia Romagna. Raised in 25Hl Slavonian botte.

    You can't think of the Romagna Sangiovese Predappio as Chiara Condello's normale or 'entry-level' offering. This 100% Sangiovese hails from tree specific vineyards, and Chiara explains that it is the balanced result of diverse soils, expositions and elevations. I have to agree. here I'm finding a beautiful display of pure Sangiovese, featuring dusty black cherry, crushed stone and wild herbs, as hints of old leather and animal musk develop in the glass. On the palate, soft textures and fleshy red fruits are offset by zesty acids, spice and minerals. it finishes balanced, fresh and tactile, as notes of tart cranberry slowly fade, leaving hints of fine tannin in their wake.
