2015 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico, Castello di Volpaia, Tuscany

Such a heady nose on this of hazelnuts, figs, and exotic spices. The palate has amazing freshness, with plenty of grip and a long, saline, nutty finish. Impossible to spit.

2015 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico, 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.
