Castello di Volpaia:
Just as in the 12th Century, the village itself still plays an essential role in our wine and oil production. The interiors of its ancient houses, churches, underground passages and deconsecrated churches have been discreetly converted into wine cellars, bottling plants and olive presses up to the ceiling in the latest equipment and all connected by an amazing underground "wineduct."

Just as in the 12th Century, the village itself still plays an essential role in our wine and oil production. The interiors of its ancient houses, churches, underground passages and deconsecrated churches have been discreetly converted into wine cellars, bottling plants and olive presses up to the ceiling in the latest equipment and all connected by an amazing underground "wineduct." Thus Volpaia is not just another magnificent tourist attraction, but a thriving hive of activity whose inhabitants are all directly or indirectly involved in the winery. Volpaia is committed to Organic farming and is certified organic for all its wines. But the environmetal project of Volpaia is much wider: - the genetical differences of all its indigenous Sangiovese clones are preserved into a special collection, a selected parcel were 22 different clones are grown on three different rootstock - all the winery i located within the ancient buildings of the village preserving the integrity of the architectural inheritage of Volpaia rather than builind new facilities - all the workers of Volpaia live in the village where the winery has ronovated appartmens for the employees Read less

Write your review here, and rate the wine from 1 to 5 glasses above.Crushed flowers and bruised berry tones great the nose with a hint of spice and suggestion of tarry, jammy sweetness. In the mouth this is pretty bright with a touch of astringency from the youthful tannins. It’s medium weight across the palate with crisp wild strawberry and currant fruits with lovely herbal and floral inner mouth perfume. The finish is a touch short and is showing some green walnut tones. Needs a bit of time to better integrate but is quite a typical Chianti Classico. 86pts

Very lively ruby red colour with purple reflexes.It is intense, fine, persistente with floreal and red berry scents. On the palate it is balanced, intense, harmonic and of good persistence.
