Castagnoli – Castellina in Chianti
Located at the heart of the Chianti Classico, one of the world’s most famous wine regions, the Castagnoli estate reflects on a rich history. First mentioned in 987 A.C., Castagnoli had served as an abbey over centuries until it became the home of a Florentine noble family. Tucked into a hillside ca. 400 meters above sea level and surrounded by its own vineyards, Castagnoli boasts not only delicious wines but also guarantees spectacular views and sunsets.
Today, its agricultural tradition is honored by a strict focus on biological principles and techniques. In that way, Castagnoli became known for its superb wines of Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah.
The south and southwest facing vineyards are framed by traditional Tuscan stone walls, whereas chalk and silt-containing clay forms the foundation for growth. Our precious products originate from 13.5 hectares.
