Since the spring of 2005, Villa Cafaggio has been under the control of Cantina La-Vis e Valle di Cembra, which together with the Girelli family is working to implement a new strategy, injecting fresh new ideas and investment in Villa Cafaggio. Minute attention to detail is employed throughout every stage of the production process; from the moment the grapes are picked, to the moment the wine leaves the winery. Villa Cafaggio is seeking to establish itself as a niche producer of Chianti Classico. Characterised by its terroir and destinctive wine style, Villa Cafaggio provides a srong proposotion to a wide variety of different markets.

Villa Cafaggio has been leading an intensive programme over the years to replant the oldest vines. In this process, soil preparation is fundamental to create a favourable setting for a correct vine growing (and consequently for the production of perfect bunches).

Rating
“Elegant and feminine from the outset, the 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva Basilica Solatěo offers a pristine and unobstructed view onto the mighty Sangiovese grape. The bouquet is ripe with primary aromas of blue flower, forest berry and bright cherry. The mouthfeel is incredibly streamlined and tight with beautifully balanced acidity to keep it lively. If you love Chianti Classico, this wine paints a very true picture of this picturesque part of Tuscany.” Wine Advocate, 91 Points

“Rich and full of sweet cherry, plum, strawberry, tobacco and mineral flavors, this Chianti Classico is well-structured and long. Shows fine balance and a finish that features iron, savory and tobacco elements. Drink now through 2023. 2,000 cases made.” Wine Spectator, 94 Points
