Valeria and Luca Orsini are two of the hardest working winery owners you will ever meet. Obsessed with quality- they take the extra effort- that others would simply skip. This focus on quality shows in every bottle. With their vineyards in the famous “Conca d’Oro” (golden conch) of Panzano, they are assured excellent fruit in every vintage.


Le Cinciole, founded in 1991, is a certified organic, eleven hectare estate in the center of the Conca d’Oro (golden conch) of Panzano in Chianti. Named the Conca d’Oro as the soils, altitude and exposures here are ideal for top quality Sangiovese production. Long recognized as one of the best crus of Chianti, it is the sweet spot with thin, poor, clay/schist soils and an extreme elevation at 470 meters.  All of the wines here are complex, multi-layered and complete.  We at Estate Wines, Ltd., are proud to import these wines directly, and to have worked with Valeria and Luca for fifteen years. Le Cinciole is named for an ancient notation at this spot, on an Etruscan/Roman map. Learn more.

Le Cinciole is one of my favorite Chianti Classico estates, and its wines epitomize fragrant, elegant high-altitude Sangiovese.

Le Cinciole, one of Tuscany’s most exciting wineries, is making fabulous wines.

Like so many high-quality producers in Panzano, proprietors Valeria Vignano and Luca Orsini are focused on biodynamic farming and a gentler approach to making wine than was once the norm.

– Antonio Galloni

Viticulture that respects the life of the soil, winemaking talent, consistent quality, these are the distinctive features of one of Chianti Classico’s most significant wineries.
