In 1974 Giorgio Bianchi and his wife decided to escape the hectic pace of Milan and made the courageous move to the town of Radda in Chianti to fulfil their dream of producing wine. It was Martino Manetti from the famous Montevertine estate who recommended the vineyard to Giorgio Bianchi and invited him to become his neighbour. The estate had been abandoned for many years and required a lot of work: the buildings were restored and the vineyards completely replanted. Now their son Roberto manages the small seven hectare estate (four owned and three leased). The vineyards are organic and Val delle Corti has become a benchmark for authentic Chianti Classico wine without heaviness and artifice. Radda’s terroir, with its stony and compact soil, consisting mainly of shale and limestone, is one of the most famous of the entire Chianti appellation.
Whether it be magazines like Gambero Rosso and Slow Wine or the Espresso Guide, major wine critics are unanimous: Roberto Bianchi is one of the Chianti Classico appellation’s greatest wine makers. His wines are remarkable for their elegance. They are pure, fine and accurately express the Radda terroir’s characteristics. More than 2,700 years ago the Etruscans were already cultivating vines on these lands; Roberto wishes to pay tribute to this rich history by labouring the vines and soils organically to demonstrate the exceptional grape quality that can be achieved.
