Castello di Volpaia overlooks the village of Radda in Chianti. The town was built in the 11th century as a fortified village on the border of Florence and Siena. The medieval layout and buildings within the village are still intact, making Volpaia one of the best preserved villages of its period. Just as it has been for the last 900 years, the entire village is intimately involved in the production of wine and olive oil. The cellars, bottling plant, barrels and olive press are nestled within the original stone walls that have been carefully restored by owners Carlo Mascheroni and Giovanella Stianti Mascheroni and their children, Nicolo and Federica. The nearly 114 acres of vineyards owned by Castello di Volpaia are at 1,300 to 2,130 feet above sea level, making Volpaia the highest winery in the Chianti region. Volpaia is certified organic.
"This juicy red has grip, setting the backdrop for pure cherry, blueberry, earth, iron and tobacco flavors. Though light-weight, this should develop over the next three to five years. Best from 2019 through 2024. 5,000 cases imported." -BS, Wine Spectator, 92 points!
"Volpaia's 2015 Chianti Classico is a very pretty, expressive wine with lovely textural depth and terrific balance. The raciness of the year comes through in the supple, fleshy fruit and inviting personality. Ripe dark and purplish stone fruit and spice notes meld together effortlessly. This is a stellar showing from Volpaia."-Vinous, 91 points!
