La Sala


Francesco and Susanna


La Sala is an historic winery purchased by a successful local boy, Francesco Rossi Ferini, whose family have long owned vines in Chianti. There are now over 27 hectares under vine in the Chianti Classico appellation, as well as 4000 olive trees (yielding quite magical grassy oil). Since 2014 there has been significant investment in the vineyards and cuverie, and the quality is outstanding, ranging from the regular Chianti through to more ambitious cuvées.  

2016 was a very successful vintage in Northern Italy: rain at the right time, plenty of sun but no temperature spikes, and fine cool weather in the autumn. The wines are classic, balanced and pure with great power and potential for ageing.

2015 Chianti Classico Riserva (LASA36215A)

2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione (LASA38215A)
The limestone soils of the Il Torriano vineyard have always provided the estate’s best fruit, so from 2015 the wine has been bottled separately. 100% Sangiovese gives dense, smooth and chocolatey notes, melting tannins, lots of power, and ripe, vibrant cherry fruit. The finish is long and satisfying, and promises a great future. The limestone soils of the Il Torriano vineyard always provided the estates?s best fruit, so from 2015 the wine has been bottled separately. 100% Sangiovese gives dense, smooth and chocolaty notes, melting tannins, lots of power, and ripe, vibrant cherry fruit.
