The grapes for the Castello Albola Chianti Classico wine are picked by hand and then vinified with great care, using the traditional method of fermentation in the presence of the skins so as to highlight the strong personality conferred by the soils of Radda in Chianti. After malolactic fermentation, the wine matures in Slavonian oak casks for 12 months.
AppearanceRuby-red tending towards garnet.
NoseBursting with strawberry, red berries, and notes of sage, spice cake, and subtle earth.
PalateVibrant and medium bodied, revealing lively cherry and exotic spice and leading to polished tannins and a delicate finish.

“This red ruby coloured wine with velvety structure has a great palate of red berries, sage and is therefore a great partner to grilled dishes.”
