Castell’in Villa, a medieval hamlet dating back to the thirteenth century, is one of the oldest estates in Castelnuovo Berardenga, the southernmost portion of Chianti Classico.Castell’in Villa became one of the first producers in Chianti to remove Canaiolo and bottle 100% Sangiovese. Today, under the continuous care of Princess Coralia, all of the wines are produced from estate grown fruit. Coralia is dedicated to producing traditionally styled, high quality wines, from low yielding vineyards, and releases older vintages only when they are showing their best. The entire estate covers almost 300 hectares with 32 hectares dedicated to olive groves and 54 hectares to vineyards. Wines are released only when they are ready, which typically ends up being two vintages later than most producers in Chianti. Sangiovese, aged in traditional Chianti Classico casks for about 12 months. The Castell’in Villa Chianti Classico captures the fruit of the Sangiovese grapes and the earthy, spicy and slightly wild traces of the soil in a beautiful blend. It is an unusually concentrated Chianti Classico, that will invariably benefit from age.
