Owned by the Ferruzzi family since 1989, however, the vineyards have been managed by 93-year old Giovanni Ferruzzi since the 1960’s. Le Regge is located in the ancient heart of Tuscany with vineyards that span across the slopes of the original family farmstead. It is here they produce just 3 wines as well as olive oil and honey from the native bee swarm that perfects the pollination of their vines. The name ‘Le Regge’ comes from the verb meaning to support, hold up, to keep from falling. This is in reference to their terraces vineyards and dry-stone support walls, unique to the area.

The Chianti Classico Riserva is made of a hand-picked selection of only the best grapes from the oldest vineyards. A blend of 85% sangiovese, 10% cabernet sauvignon and 5% canaiolo, it is aged for 18 months in large oak barrels. It is intense, full bodied with dry tannins that follow through to an elegant finish. Black cherry, licorice and cacao notes will pair with braised lamb shanks, beef short ribs or bison bolognese.
