Product guide note

This wine is made from the Sangioveto grape (pronounced Sanjee-ohvehtoh), a traditional Tuscan variety.

Production information

Producer: Castellare di Castellina

Castellare di Castellina does not follow fashion. While many Chianti wineries have lost touch with their Tuscan roots and experimented with blending French varieties and local grapes over the past few decades, the wine made at Castellare keeps a strong commitment to the traditional Tuscan variety of Sangioveto, the original local name for Sangiovese.

Production note

The grape must is fermented in steel vats for 18 to 21 days at a controlled temperature of 28°C. The wine then goes through malolactic fermentation before being aged for 15 months in used barriques.
