Cellar for up to 12 years. Decant 1 hour before serving.

The modern history of Castello di Volpaia dates back to the 1970s when it was given as a wedding gift to Carlo and Giovannella Mascheroni by Giovannella’s father, Raffaello Stianti. The winery is located in the charming 11th century walled village of Volpaia. Over the years the couple have completely renovated and transformed the winery, creating wine cellars out of ancient buildings and churches, without significantly altering the external structure of this enigmatic place.

Their single vineyard Coltassala Chianti Classico is a true icon of the winery which was first created as a so-called Super Tuscan wine in 1980. At the time the wine could not be classified as Chianti Classico due to strict limitations on using grapes other than Sangiovese. Over time those rules have been changed to allow greater winemaking creativity and expression, and Coltassala is now proudly labelled as a Chianti Classico Gran Selezione.

The prized Coltassala vineyard is farmed organically and planted on well-draining sandstone soils which help to create an elegant Chianti with refined tannins and a delicate structure. Following vinification the young wine is aged in new French oak barrels for 24 months and then aged in the bottle for another 6 months. Luscious dark cherries, spice and leather dominate the flavour profile with plenty of freshness and a long and complex finish.
