Vineyard: The estate of Castello d'Albola is situated in the Chianti Classico area in the province of Siena, Tuscany. The vineyards are situated at an average altitude of 500 metres (1,300 feet) above sea level, although at some points they attain a height of 1,640 feet. The soil consists primarily of the alberese and galestro limestone. Vinification and maturation: After removal of the stalks and crushing, the must is fermented for 12 days in contact with the skins in modern horizontal tanks that assure perfect conditions for vinification, allowing for greater skin contact and flavour concentration. Once the sugar has been converted to alcohol, the wine is racked into large Slavonian oak casks, where it matures and fines for 12 months. That is followed by fining in the bottle for a period of six months. Bottling is carried out in anticipation of release onto the market, with provision for the period of fining.
Tasting notes
COLOUR Ruby-red tending towards garnet. BOUQUET Elegant, with delicate scents of violets. FLAVOUR Well-balanced and dry, with good structure and a velvety texture.

 Vinous 89 points (Sep 2014)
(95% sangiovese and 5% canaiolo nero): Good deep red. Strawberry, red cherry, pomegranate and rose petal on the fruity, perfumed nose. Sweet, silky and fresh on the front half, then turns firmer and more minerally on the back end, finishing with lingering floral character. Not the most complex red wine you’ll ever drink, but a lovely entry-level Chianti that’s hard to resist.
 Wine Spectator 90 points (Feb 23 2015)
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. 100,000 cases made. From Italy.-B.S. Rated #46 in Wine Spectator’s 2015 Top 100

Technical notes

Food pairing
It is a perfect accompaniment for the richly-flavored dishes of the traditional Chianti cuisine, as well as for grilled meats and mature cheeses.
