Wine Spectator TOP100 2015 n.46, 90 pts.

Castello d’Albola Chianti Classico 2011*

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. —BS

Wine Spectator TOP100 2010 n.47, 90 pts.

Castello d’Albola Chianti Classico 2007*

This is what Chianti should taste like, with plenty of dark cherry and floral aromas and flavors that say Sangiovese.

Fresh and fruity. Drink now. 50,000 cases made. —JS

Over the course of 7 generations, the Zonin family has built an indelible bond with its native land in Veneto and with wine, devoting all its energy and passion to making a dream come true.

The history of Albola might well begin with the account in the Dizionario del Granducato di Toscana (1841): ‘There is a stretch of countryside actually called Albola that is renowned for its vineyards, from which perhaps the best wines of Chianti are obtained.’

The origins of Albola, vanish amidst the myths of Proto-Villanovan civilization but it is certain that the place-name dates back to Etruscan times, centuries before the Roman Empire.
