A single ungrafted vineyard produces the pinnacle of Volpaia's production. The 2016 is impressive. Notes of rose petal and graphite swirl, and the tannins are intense and structured. Give this a little time: you'll be rewarded.

2016 Il Puro, Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, 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.
