“(…) some of the most fairly priced wines in all of Tuscany.”
Antoni Galloni, Vinous.com, Sept 2014
Rocca di Castagnoli honed their wines via extensive research of 134 Sangiovese clones, selecting 19 from those, and working with the best 4. One was recognised, ratified by decree and called RDC, an honour befitting the calibre of this winery. Consequently, Castagnoli makes Sangiovese and Chianti Classico with their own Clones.
The Village of Castagnoli lies in the heart of Chianti and rises from the Chianti Classico area, arguably one of the highest elevations in the district.
