La Misse, the little Miss of Candialle, is mostly Sangiovese with small amounts of Malvasia Nera and Canaiolo, fermented and aged in concrete for eighteen months. Fruit forward and juicy with bright red cherry fruit and attractive freshness. This is a stylish, concentrated wine with perfumed black cherry fruit, the palate structured and elegant with crunchy acidity and fine tannins. 

Sommeliers Recommendation: Chianti Classico is the most underrated region in the world. The quality of grapes and wines coming from Chianti Classico is unrivaled at the price from Europe. This wine is has beautiful bright fruit dancing on crisp acidity and framed with soft and supple tannins. Could be matched with any tomato based dish and has the concentration of fruit to handle your best meats off the grill.

Candialle, one of Tuscany’s up and coming estates, is located 20km south of Florence along the Via Chiantigiana – the famous route that leads through the hills and vineyards of the Chianti Classico DOCG towards Siena. Established by Josephin Cramer and Jarkko Peränen, Candialle’s vineyards are nestled below the historic village of Panzano in Chianti in the famous Conca d’Oro, the valley of the ‘Golden Shell’, long considered one of Tuscany’s ‘grand crus’. Josephin and Jarkko take a holistic approach to their ‘agroecosystem’, employing environmentally friendly cultivation methods to strictly control yields, essential factors in ensuring the uniqueness of Candialle wines. There are less than twelve hectares under vine and they make two Chianti Classico wines.
