Cellar for up to 10 years. No need to decant before serving.

Located in the 11th century walled village of Volpaia, this important Chianti winery has enjoyed a renaissance in recent years thanks to Carlo and Giovannella Mascheroni. The winery was gifted to the couple as a wedding gift by Giovannella’s father, Raffaello Stianti, one of Italy’s most important printers and bookbinders. Over the years the property has been modernised without making any changes to the external structure of the ancient village.

With 114 acres of vineyards set at 400 to 640 metres above sea level, Castello di Volpaia is Chianti’s highest altitude winery. During the summer this means warm sunny days followed by cooler nights which helps to produce ripe fruit balanced with plenty of freshness and aromatics. These ideal growing conditions, as well as top notch winemaking, are the reasons why this bottling is the first Chianti Classico ever to rank in Wine Spectator’s top three wines in the world.

The Volpaia Chianti Classico Riserva was first produced in 1967, at a time when it was very rare for Chianti wineries to make a Riserva wine. Following vinification the wine is aged in French and Slovenian oak casks for 24 months and then a further 3 months in the bottle. Elegant and well-structured, this stunning wine is a great partner for charcuterie, mature hard cheeses and game dishes although it can also be cellared for a few more years to reveal even more of its hidden beauty.
