Description

The fruit for the Castello Albola Gran Selection Sangiovese is fermented in steel vats at a controlled temperature where it is left to macerate for three weeks. After malolactic fermentation, half the wine is allowed to mature in barriques while the other half is put in large sessile oak barrels for 14 months. This is followed by ageing in the bottle for a year and a half.

Sommelier Review

“Fertile and flourishing landscapes of Tuscany give us these grapes, from which the winemaker of the Italian winery Castello d'Albola with subtlety and sensitivity conjures up this red wine.”
