Winemaker's Notes:

Fattoria di Rodano is located in the heart of the Chianti Classico in the famed region of Castellina in Chianti. The original farm dates back from the middle ages, when it was used as a lodge for pilgrims travelling from northern Europe to Rome. Its pristine vineyard that spread to over 100 hectares is located at 200-300 metres above sea level, is the perfect location to create classic, soulful Chianti Classico. The estate has been in the Pozzesi family since the 1700s. Vittorio Pozzesi, is the President of the Chianti Classico Consortium, and he runs the winery along with his son Enrico and winemaker Giulio Gambelli. The pride and joy of the property is their Viacosta vineyard, a south-facing vineyard of 35- to-45-year-old vines. The wines are aged in a combination of traditional Slovenian botte grande and small barriques. The result is wine that combines pure fruit and a spirit of earthiness. The vineyards are constantly being replanted with the newest Sangiovese clones and double density vines per hectare. The Chianti Classico “normale” 2003 comes from vineyards facing southwest in the Castellina district. The wine, a blend of 90% Sangiovese with 5% each of Colorino and Canaiolo, respects the tradition of Chianti Classico but also has “modern components“ from the aging in small French barrels. Luscious plum, cinnamon, wild strawberries with a ruddy cherry sweetness mark this excellent value Chianti Classico. The savoury fruit is well balanced and lifted by the piquant acidity. Elegant and lengthy in the finish. The wine is unfined and unfiltered - all the meat left on these bones!
