The vineyards that surround the hamlet of Castello di Albola form a site of outstanding quality and they represent the most evocative amphitheatre of vines in all of Chianti Classico. The historic vineyards are located at an altitude of between 350 and 550 metres above sea level and have excellent exposure to light. Gianni Zonin’s first priority is to ensure that the vineyards produces high quality grapes for the range of wines from this Castello.
The grapes for this excellent Chianti were picked by hand and then viniﬁed with great care, using the traditional method of fermentation in the presence of the skins so as to highlight the strong personality conferred by the soils of Radda in Chianti. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine matured in Slavonian oak casks for 12 months.
