Living with the wine in the heart 

"... today, the visionaries who experience with crops and vines and pruning and grafting and barrels and bottles, and time are those who have honed the art, having studied the craft of making wine, who continue to study to do more and above all do better. wine production has become an almost exact science, but retains the charm and awe of the earth and the whims of sun and benevolent and threatening rain. Just nothing to frustrate the efforts of man and science instead of making wine a good harvest. Today in every cup that is empty there is the knowledge of a few and hard work of many, faith and consciousness and the dream that I have by the end of the first cluster crushed between the fingers."

  • Burchino, a Chianti of "Diamond"

    First place overall in the Pisa area

    The jury of "Festival del Chianti", divided into three committees of taste has declared the victory with unique opinion of our wine as the best Chianti in the province of Pisa. A great opportunity because the quality of the wines in the competition was very good and growing steadily, just as you would expect from this area, particularly suited to Sangiovese.

  • Castellani, 110 years

    A milestone that will be reached with the end of the year.

    With the end of 2013, the Castellani family celebrates 110 years of history.

  • Eva & il Lupo

    A sound journey for the poetess and the musician.

    Once again the name Castellani binds to a cultural project. In this case, the company has co-produced a fascinating musical work created by the collaboration between the writer-painter-actress Eva Malacarne and musician Andrea Lupo Lupi. "Eva & il Lupo", this is the name, is in fact an album out of the ordinary because it combines poetry and music in an absolutely original and unusual way mixing with taste and technical capacity many styles and rhythms.

    It ranges between reggae and rock, pizzica and flamenco, latin jazz and country, reaching even folk sounds. Beautiful and important lyrics sung mostly in Italian but not only, some of them in English, Spanish and Portuguese. 13 tracks where the depth of the texts of Eva combines perfectly with the intensity of music composed by Lupo and arranged by both. To give even more depth to the project is the musical execution; lively, engaging and sophisticated of the musical ensemble 4 Venti, Roberto Molesti (piano, organ and accordion), Alessandro Criscino (drums) and Mimmo Mollica (harmonics).

    The album will be presented Saturday, December 7, 2013 at the Teatro delle Sfide of Bientina (PI) and on this occasion there will be a special tasting of semi-wild pork sausage, pleasantly accompanied by the Ceppaiano wines.
