The estate started in 1974 with Giuseppe Castiglioni buying a single hectare of vineyard on a hillside in Tuscany. During the 1980's Giuseppe and his investor purchased more land and converted the estate vineyards to organic, becoming one of the first organic wines in Italy by 1988. The estate now farms over 100 hectares organically and biodynamically, and it's also certified vegan.
Chianti Classico Riserva is the perfect blend of the estate’s best parcels of Sangiovese from vineyards in Greve, Radda and Gaiole in Chianti.
Each vineyard is picked and fermented lot by lot, prior to 16 months maturation in fine to extra fine-grained oak barriques (225 l) and tonneaux (500 l) of which up to 20% new.
