Chianti Classico Riserva
Price per bottle 0,75l
Poderi Castellare di Castellina is a company of about 80 hectares in the heart of the Chianti Classico area, close to the village of Castellina in Chianti. The hectares of vineyard are almost 33, located on the hills of a natural amphitheatre facing southeast. The production is of about 250.000 bottles of wine per year. To a middle altitude of 370 m. above sea level the vineyards have an age between 5 and 30 years. Castellare di Castellina was born in 1968 from the consolidation of five farms. A good exposure to the sun, a good drain of the water, a mixed ground of calcareous marls, galestro and little clay give wines both red and white, which are very well structured, intense and proper for a long ageing in bottle.
Only native vines, without Cabernet and Merlot, to maintain the typical formula of the most famous among Italian wines, without following the fashion, that, using even South wines, makes the beautiful red ruby of Sangioveto red and black. A wine that wants to reach, with its uniqueness, the maximum elegance.
