2017 jurij fiore & figlia, chianti classico, porcacciamiseria lamole
Why We're Buying
Porcacciamiseria Lamole Chianti Classico is the most famous wine from Jurij Flore & Figlia. The red wine is powerful and plentiful on the palate with a sweeping finish. With fewer than 1,000 bottles released each year, the price and demand are constantly high.
Besides managing his father's Poggio Scalette estate, Jurij Fiore started a new project with his daughter Sara in 2015. Together they craft microscopic quantities from 1.8 hectares in the area of Lamole. Porcacciamiseria comes from 70-year-old vines (Sangiovese with Colorino, Canaiolo Nero and other native grapes) grown at 645 metres. Pungently aromatic, this bursts with a bouquet of spring flowers, cherry and red currant. Mid-weight but packed with chalky tannins and a mouth cleansing structure, it is a precise and lively 2017. Finishes with a cranberry tang.
