Nestled in the Tuscan hills, the Castello d'Albola was long the domain of famous and noble families whose influence during the Renaissance remains legendary. The estate, its vineyards and the surrounding hills are located in the heart of the Chianti region.

Tasting notes
The wine offers a brilliant ruby red color. As timepasses, the hue is enriched with garnet tones that, as the years go by, lighten further toward orange with an ochre tint typical of Tuscan wines. The aroma is satisfyingly intense, fine and elegant, with light scents of ripe fruits and violets. As it evolves, the wine develops an appealing bouquet that is full and complex. It possesses a pleasant fullness and an outstanding balance of body and structure. Somewhat austere in its youth, the wine softens with age, becoming velvety and developing prolonged and appealing aromatic persistence.

Rating
“Firm and taut, with a core of cherry and berry flavors, accented by underbrush, tobacco and iron notes. Balanced in a lean way, with a lingering aftertaste of earth and mineral. Best from 2016 through 2025.” Wine Spectator, 90 Points

Technical notes
Alcohol: 12.5%

Food pairing
This wine pairs well with roasts, pasta dishes and cheese.
