About the Producer

Winemaker Giuseppe Losapio founded Azienda Uggiano in the early 1970s, and steadily developed the estate at San Vincenzo a Torri. It is now one of the leading producers in the Chianti Colli Fiorentini zone. With 100 hectares of hillside vineyards (in both Colli Fiorentini and around neighbouring Chianti Classico, near San Casciano), Uggiano produces classic and classy Tuscan reds from the region's principal grape varieties. A core of quality runs through an unfussy, practical and exceptionally well-priced range, from bright entry level Chianti to some impressive Riserva wines. In 2015, the Losapio family sold the company to Uggiano’s young but experienced management team, including commercial manager Giacomo Fossati and Daniele Prosperi, winemaker for the past 12 vintages.

Vineyard and Winery

After crushing, the must undergoes temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel (28-30°C), with pumping over twice a day to extract colour and tannin. After 10-15 days the wine is racked to large 30-60 hl oak casks for 6 months, with further refinement for at least 3 months in bottle.

Excellent value for money

This one caught my eye as I was looking for a bottle of my favourite Baccolo for the weekend. I bought it on impulse and am glad I did. I'm not an expert on wine. I'm just one of those people who likes to relax at the end of the week with a glass from a quality bottle of red Italian wine. Roccialta is a fruity and easy drinking red that I will definitely be adding to my shopping list from now on.
