ADD

High atop a hill outside Castellina in Chianti, the Castagnoli estate enjoys stunning scenery that could come straight from one’s dreams of a Tuscan country getaway. Vines cover the steep slopes that lead up to the farmhouse, with a backdrop of majestic hills setting the stage for the production of this most artisanal Chianti Classico. The poor soils of galestro schist yield low quantities of perfectly balanced Sangiovese that delightfully translates the surrounding environment, giving sun-kissed, herbaceous, deeply mineral wines with almost exotic aromatics. The Riserva represents the estate’s top vineyards, well-exposed terraces—rare in Tuscany—prone to producing complex, long-lived reds. Fermentation in wood casks and aging in large botti ensure the integrity of the fruit and terroir are fully preserved, making this cellar-worthy Chianti the ideal companion to rustic Tuscan cuisine. –Anthony Lynch
