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 Read more »

  • Castello di Volpaia Sangiovese Blend Chianti Classico 2006


    Well, its a decent chianti. These days, you're lucky if you don't choke on a bottle they're so bad, so lets give this one credit for being absolutely drinkable, especially for those who like dry wines. Its not too bitter or too sweet, but its NOT complex, so don't expect a Brunello(you weren't though, right?). I'm surprised other reviewers go on... Read More

    Wine review by emk86

  • Volpaia: it takes a village, no seriously. The Castello di Volpaia estate is one of the most remarkable wineries I have ever visited. Now, granted I was there in the off-season, but driving up the rather winding road to the hilltop enclave, it’s really not much more than a ring of buildings protecting the inner Castello, can leave you a little p...

    The first vintage of Prelius, a new property recently purchased by the Stianti ... family, owners of Tuscanys Castello di Volpaia.Woodsy and herbal on the nose with a dark, plummy core of fruit framed by chocolate, and smoky oak tones.

  • Castello di Volpaia Supertuscan Blend Toscana IGT Balifico 2005


    The nose is tight but shows nice depth to the black fruits and integrated oak tones. In the mouth this is very smooth with moderately intense, somewhat brambly, blackberry tones supported by modest tannins. On the mid-palate theres a hint of herbaciousness and slightly peppery red currant fruit that carry a cinnamon note on to the finish. The fi... Read More

  • Castello di Volpaia Sangiovese Blend Vino da Tavola Coltassala 2005


    Light aromatic tones on the nose with a touch of wood spice. In the mouth theres good fruit with nice stemmy, strawberry top tones up front balanced by cigar box notes that add some sweetness to the fruit across the mid-palate. The fruit lacks some definition though the finish is juicy and crisp with slightly under-ripe strawberry tones. This ha... Read More

  • Castello di Volpaia Chianti Classico Riserva 2005


    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. Theres a nice sweetness on the finish and this ... Read More

    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. Its medium weight across the palate with crisp wild strawberry and curr... Read More

  • Castello di Volpaia White Blend Toscana IGT Bianco 2008


    This has a nose dominated by sweet, pear rich, Chardonnay fruit with a touch of floral/herbal Sauvignon Blanc high tones. With air this reveals a nice chalky minerality and the fruit rounds out with a nice white peach note. On entry this is a touch soft and chardonnay dominated but gains a nice sweet pea flower tone on the mid-palate where it ga... Read More

  • Volpaia Chianti Riserva 2004


    Olives, kirsch and fern on the nose. Very mineral and acidic - the wine starts out slowly, but builds with a strong leathery quality with raw drying tannins and a pungent animal quality on the finish. Still very tight, despite being 5 years old. This is an interesting wine, not my style though. Read More
