The Castello d’Abola estate is located in Radda in Chianti, where vine cultivation dates from the Etruscan period. The oldest buildings on the estate date from the 12th century, when the property was owned by the noble Magnate of Monterinaldi. It was subsequently owned by families who shaped Tuscan history: the Acciaiuoli, the Samminiati, the Pazzi and the Princes of Ginori Conti. The Zonin family acquired the property in the 1970s. The unparalleled surrounding countryside abounds in history and culture that date back

Today we’re talking about Chianti Classico, soon to be followed by thoughts on a line-up of the new Gran Selezione wines.

  • Castello d'Albola Chianti Classico 2010

    Snoothrank:

    95% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo A bit flat on the nose showing off some old wood tones and a bit of spice character as well. Decidedly flat in the mouth with lots of candied medicinal and herbal flavors layered over dark black cherry fruit this is rather short and inelegant but not overtly offensive. 83pts Read More

  • Castello d'Albola Chianti 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Pours a light crimson color with light pink hues on the edges. Simple nose with some light red cherries and raspberries. Starts off with a mild amount of fruit and lasts throughout. Not overly complex. This wine seems to have a lot of acidity but not much else. Not a wine to drink alone as it needs food to take away from the acidity. We se... Read More
