The property was owned by the nearby Monastery of Badia a Coltibuono from the 12th to the 20th Century. In 1971, the Englishman John Dunkley with his Italian wife, Palmina Abbagnano, first bought 1.5 hectares of land. They rebuilt the old stone villa and started replanting the vineyards. The first harvest is Vino Rosso - just 100 bottles. Since 2015, the estate extends to more than 20 hectares, all in Gaiole, Chianti, Siena province and organic certified. Riecine enjoys plots of land offering an original mosaic of terroirs, making the wines unique and rare. Natural yeasts are used, with long and slow fermentation in cement tanks. Each plot is vinified separately to preserve its individuality. The winery is located 480 meters above sea level, which further adds to the fantastic elegance and freshness of the wine.
