Brothers Andrea and Alessandro Boscu Bianchi Bandinelli are such classy gentlemen—suavely dressed, well mannered, and commanding a surprising mastery of the English language—that it is almost difficult to imagine them hard at work in an old stone cellar, with a backdrop of damp, moldy walls and cobwebs, crafting genuine and heartwarmingly rustic Sangiovese. Yet beneath Villa di Geggiano, the museum-like estate they run whose colorful frescoes and perfectly preserved antiques take us centuries back in time, something special is unfolding. The Geggiano winemaking operation is about as artisanal as can be, housed in a thirteenth-century cellar filled with nothing but old wooden casks, where the elixir of these Tuscan hillsides patiently blossoms to maturity.

A lighter-bodied introduction to the estate, the Bandinello includes a dash of Ciliegiolo and Syrah alongside Sangiovese. Floral-scented with plenty of fresh, dark fruit, it is an entry-level ticket to everyday Tuscan contentment. –Anthony Lynch
