Description

Castellare di Castellina was formed in the 1970s, by an union of growers and 4 estates. The aim is to consolidate the resource and make the best possible wines Tuscan lands could offer. Innovation was pursued first of all with the creation of the first experimental vineyard in the Chianti region together with the University of Milan – directed by Professor Attilio Scienza – and the University of Florence, implementing the first scientific selection of Sangiovese clones, now known as Sangioveto.

The union’s land covers a total of 80 hectares – including 20 occupied by olive groves. The vineyards occupy 33 hectares on the hillsides of a natural south-east facing amphitheater, at an average height of 370 meters above sea level. The vines are aged between 7 and over 45 years, and yields per hectare are kept very low to obtain the maximum quality. Excellent exposure to the sun, good water drainage and a mixed soil containing limestone marl, galestro pebbles and little clay produce well-structured, intense wines, both red and white, suitable for long ageing in the bottle.

The vineyards of Castellina in Chianti.

The fruits used to make this Chianti Classico was entirely sourced within the Castellina in Chianti, South-western side of the appellation. The wine is made in the traditional manner, continue to blend Sangioveto with minor amount of other local black skinned varieties such as Canaiolo, Colorino and Malvasia Nero. Compare to most of other Chianti, this wine is particularly floral, with iris and violet aroma. The land is composed by Calcareous soil, rather low in organic matters, thus making the wine lean, structured and has lingering acidity in palate.

The wine had been partially aged in lightly toasted oak for 12 month, which provides the palate overall some subtle secondary aroma. It’s suggested to enjoy this wine slightly warmer to allow the aroma to release, 15℃ for summer and 18℃ for winter. And it would be at its peak between 5 and 10 years of age.
