Vigna Il Corto is the flagship Tuscan red for Chianti winemaker Paolo Masi at his century old Fattoria di Basciano estate. Using Sangiovese with a little Cabernet, all from the steep, high Il Corto vineyard, this is a dense, barrel aged beauty.

Tony Laithwaite first met Paolo Masi in 1994 when the young Italian was fresh out of college. Paolo was fired up with ideas on how to elevate his family’s good Chianti and make it something really special. Over the years Paolo’s more than achieved his goal. He makes our bestselling Chianti, always great value, but also crafts high-end Chianti and Super Tuscan wines. Tasted blind against some of the top names from Chianti Classico, Paolo’s wines win hands down. The family estate lies in Rufina, a small area close to Florence that was making wine before even the Classico region. His vineyards lie at 300 metres on steeply sloping galestro soils, which, along with cool nights, promote intense flavour. Aged in new oak, this is a rich, full red.
