2015 Coltassala, Chianti Classico Riserva, Castello di Volpaia, Tuscany

There are layers of texture and flavour here: this is proper Sangiovese. With lovely fruit and a hint of herbs on the nose, and the right balance of tannin and freshness from time in the barrel, this is a wine that lasts and lasts.

2015 Coltassala, Chianti Classico Riserva, Castello di Volpaia, Tuscany
Castello di Volpaia

Few places represent history like Volpaia. This perfectly preserved village was built as a fort to protect Florence from the marauding Sienese in the 11th century. The estate of Castello di Volpaia is situated in the heart of the village. Run by Giovannella Stianti and her son Nicolo Mascheroni Stianti, the estate is situated at one of the highest points of the Chianti zone. This altitude gives the wines freshness, making them some of the most elegant Chiantis available.
