Castello di Volpaia is a winery located in the medieval village of Volpaia. The estate has over 900 acres (360 ha) divided between vineyards, olive groves, and woods.

The village of Volpaia sits on a hilltop north of the town of Radda in the heart of the Chianti Classico region in Tuscany. Volpaia was built in 1172 as a fortified village on the Florence-Siena border. The winery’s logo highlights the coat of arms from the della Volpaia family, who lived in the village and took its name from the town itself. Volpaia is a terra murata, a walled village although not all of the wall exists now, Volpaia is one of the best preserved villages of its period .

Our feature this week is their 2018 Castello di Volpiaia Chianti Classico – $27.99 (regularly $34.99), showcasing cherry, walnut and stone aromas and flavors. Medium bodied, firm and lightly chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Delicious red from one of the flagships of Chianti, made from organically grown grapes.

The vineyards reside in high altitude – over 400m above sea level on predominantly sandstone soils rich in skeleton suitable for the production of elegant and long-lasting reds, harmonious and aristocratic wines that manage to maintain the fruity aromas of the best Sangiovese for a long time. Enjoy with pizza or pasta.
