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.
