2017 Chianti Classico, Castello di Volpaia, Tuscany

90% Sangiovese. 10% Merlot. Plums and wild cherries on the nose, intense and powerful, with lovely silky fruit and balsamic notes. There’s a candied orange note, and plenty of clove spice, too. Very complex, and very delicious.

2017 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.
