"Powerful , brilliant ruby - violet. Very clear and dense nose, dark currants, some tobacco in the background. Dust, yet confident flavors battle tannins on the palate, shows great density, builds up in many layers on, fine enamel, the final fine fruit." (Translation)
Winery Tasting Notes
"Cabernet planted on the old Stielle vineyard site, ripens every year astoundingly fresh and complex. Fat, yet fluid, with flavors of cassis, black olives, and dark rustic fruit tones. Aged for 6 months in stainless steel, 18 months in barrique followed by 12 months bottle aging."
About the Estate
"Located in the Gaiole district, with vast extensions of vineyard land into the Castellina district of the Chianti Classico, Rocca di Castagnoli may be the Classico's largest estate in acreage planted to vine. This does not hinder the thriving estate to produce some of the most distinguished examples of Chianti Classico. By bottling only the very best from their production, results of great typical character have been achieved. Also contributing to this character is clearly the soil - 'Galestro' is a stone look alike compacted form of clay which captures high amounts of minerals. This estate represents the rare quest for classical, acidity driven, but ripe Chianti Classico from higher altitude vineyards."
"The little village, or borgo, of Castagnoli has existed since the early Middle Ages. The first reliable documentation dates back as far as the year 900 AD and concerns the sale of a holding called Stielle, which still today is the name and location of the best vineyard within the Rocca di Castagnoli estate. Owned by the Cali family, this estate has shown great integrity by aiming at a vineyard distinction on each label, to document the variety of soils and microclimates that make the Chianti Classico so famous. Today Rocca di Castagnoli is the only estate developing new head pruned Sangiovese vineyards in the Classico region. "
