HISTORY

Origin

From as far back as the 12th century we can find references to the place name ‘Riecine’ in the maps of the Abbey of San Lorenzo a Coltibuono. The first ever reference dates back to December 1112 in the abbey archives which state that through an exchange, the monastery came into possession of several pieces of vineyard «in Camprato, in Riecine, in San Donato in Perano and elsewhere».

THE VINEYARDS

“When Baron Philippe de Rothschild plants Sangiovese, I will convert to Cabernet Sauvignon.”

John Dunkley

From an agronomic point of view, all Riecine vineyards have been cultivated under an ICEA-certified organic regime since 2006. They all have plant covers, weeding between the rows is purely mechanical, and topping and stripping has been completely eliminated. The aim here is to tackle the increasingly severe and sudden effects of climate change: it is generally encouraged to choose natural ways to protect the soil from excessive evaporation and to protect the vines themselves from the sun’s rays and increasingly high summer temperatures. Efforts are also being made to promote the settlement of native microfauna.

Riecine’s ambition is to stay true to its past while looking towards the future: “After 10 years of working with the Riecine team, I am convinced that the company’s recipe for producing successful wines is actually quite simple. Nature and the land have given us everything we need and Riecine has been very fortunate in this respect. All we need to do, and indeed all we can do, is to work hard and meticulously in the vineyards without cutting corners or compromising. We can proudly claim that we grow our own wine, instead of just ‘making it’. Our team of winemakers has the best possible tools at its disposal. We follow and respect centuries-old Tuscan wine making traditions while being open to new experiments and ideas at the same time. Last but by no means least, we owe much of our success to the people who work for Riecine: thanks to their knowledge, talent, passion and commitment they create wines that we are truly proud to offer our customers.”
