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.

This has a strong, hard scent with big soil tones and a light underlay of smoke and cool, crisp lichen and mossy notes but not showing a lot of fruit at this point. Chewy and a bit soft in the mouth with some peachy tannins across the mid-palate that adds a nice accent to the black raspberry fruit. There’s a nice sweetness on the finish and this is well balanced but neither complex nor particularly deep. 87pts
