Chiara Condello is a young winemaker located in the town of Predappio in Emilia-Romagna, specifically Romagna

Chiara owns seven hectares of land, 4.8 of which are planted to Sangiovese, and the rest are split between woods and olive trees.  Her family also makes wine in Predappio under their own label called Condè, but Chiara works in her own way, with her own vineyards and own cellar.  Her first vintage was 2015, and in short time she’s combined her bright-eyed enthusiasm with a clear vision of what her Sangiovese should be.

Romagna is no stranger to Sangiovese; many ampelographers believe it originates here and not in Tuscany. Predappio is one of twelve villages that give their names to Sangiovese subzones authorized as of the 2011 vintage. It is located in the foothills of the Apennines, and is characterized by a sedimentary soil called spungone, which is relatively young (three million years old, from the Pliocene epoch).  It contains abundant, intact shells of marine life, often quite large, and is chunky and porous, held together by a calcareous sandstone “cement.”

Le Lucciole is Chiara's Riserva. It's 100% Sangiovese sourced from a parcel of 0.8 hectares planted at a density of 5,500 vines per hectare, 250m above sea level. The vines are 20 years old. The grapes were partially destemmed; those that were destemmed were left whole-berry without crushing. Fermentation was spontaneous in open-top tronconic wood vats and tonneaux, without temperture control. Maceration lasted 45 days. Aging was in used Slavonian oak botti for two years and a year in bottle before release.
