Castello d'Albola Chianti Classico 2015

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Situated in Radda in Chianti, the heart of the Chianti Classico DOCG appellation, where grape cultivation has a legacy dating back to the time of the Etruscans. In the 15th century, the Acciaiuoli family commissioned Castello d'Albola to plant the highest vineyard in Chianti Classico because it was perceived as a symbol of status. Over the centuries, many noble Tuscan families have owned the property and the estate has earned many accolades for its wines. In 1979, the Zonin family acquired Castello d'Albola promising to uphold the estate's excellence for future generations. Castello d'Albola wines have earned the iconic "Gallo Nero" symbol from the Chianti Classico Wine Consortium that guarantees the highest winemaking standards. - Winery
