Over 1000 hectares of landed estates in Tuscany

Tuscany is a hilly region, famous all over the world for the beauty of the countryside, the richness of the historical sites and the traditional art of wine making.

The Castellani Family controls over 1000 hectares of landed estates situated in the territories of Chianti, Chianti Classico and Maremma; around 210 hectares of own properties are planted to specialized vineyards were the vines are pruned and tended in ways that assure production of grapes of the finest quality, mainly noble Tuscan varietals such as Sangiovese and Sangiovese Grosso.

A winery is located in each vineyards estate so that the grapes can be immediately pressed, vinified and refined in the best traditional way.

Bright ruby red wine. Elegant impact on the nose with hints of lemon on a raspberry background. Taste, warm and passionate with slight tannins, it lingers on the palate and is ready to drink now but will age well on its graceful balance.
