Chiara Condello

"Even her “entry-level” Romagna Sangiovese Predappio, a blend of three vineyards, can put many of the top wines of the region to shame."
Eric Guido - Vinous

Chiara Condello began her wine-life working in her family winery, also located in Romagna. In 2015, she started her own project after locating a parcel of older vines (averaging around forty years old) that ran along the hillsides of Predappio in the foothills of the Apennines mountains with north and northeastern exposures. These sites are important when considering the increasing temperatures that the region has witnessed over the last few decades. All practices are organic in the vineyards, followed by indigenous yeast fermentations, minimal temperature control, long macerations and refinement in large neutral wood vessels in the cellar. With each passing vintage, the wines at this estate continue to get better and better. (Eric Guido)
