Have you ever had a friend tell you that they don’t like Chianti? Well this one will change their mind! Grown in the first Italian wine appellation to require organic farming, Romignano’s Chianti DOCG is a luscious expression of Sangiovese. Native yeasts and stainless steel winemaking preserve the nature of the grape: ripe black cherries, dusty tannins, and a long, voluptuous finish that will have you saying, “damn that’s good!” Trust us, you’ll love Chianti after trying this wine!

About the Winery

Fattoria di Romignano nails the classic, every-day Sangiovese, the kind that you'd be served at a local trattoria, paired with Pappardelle al cinghiale, that makes you wonder, why can’t I find this wine at home?

The man behind Romignano is Riccardo Rossi, third generation vigneron. He imbues a passion for simple elegance, perhaps a carry-over from his surfing days. All of these elements come together in his wines, and explain why they're a hit with consumers who crave simple, delicious Sangiovese.

The estate is in the Upper Val d'Arno di Sopra (a narrow valley between the mountains of Chianti Classico and the Patromagno massif), an area best known for its famous wineries, Il Borro and Sette Ponti). Although most of the local Sangiovese wineries bottle under the Chianti DOCG or Chianti Colli Aretini, the appellation has risen in
prominence after becoming the first DOC in Italy to require organic farming.

In addition to certified organic farming, Riccardo favors minimal intervention in the cellar. Native yeasts, all stainless. The result is a fresh, versatile style that originally made Chianti a sensation.
