J. Suckling: "Shows freshly sliced plum, with crushed raspberry, almost peach. Full-bodied, with soft, velvety tannins and a long clean and crisp finish, hard not to drink now. A fascinating wine"

F. Tasker - The Miami Herald: "Light and bright, with flavor of raspberry and cloves"

M. Bedford - Edge Food & Drink: "I've been recently enamored with La Cattura, an organic wine that is at once fruity and light, without compromising a well-balanced character"

Estate

The Poggio al Casone vineyard is located on the first hills overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea in the municipality of Crespina, an ancient castle in the province of Pisa. In the heart of the vineyards are located the main villa and the old houses built during the Leopoldina era (circa 1800) and recently restored respecting their history, now set of the wine experimentation centre of the Castellani Family and of a renowned resort farmhouse. The vineyards cover about 27 hectares of alluvial soils consisting of tufaceous sands alternating with layers of gravel from river result of repeated flooding of the mouth of Arno river. The location of the vineyard at the confluence of the Arno valley and the plains overlooking the sea, is one of the elements that makes the area particularly vocated to the production of quality wines, thanks to the deep and draining soils, sea breezes and intense brightness. The entire vineyard has been subject of repeated renovations in the 60s by engineer Sarti, inventor of the Vespa engine, and then by the Castellani Family who, since 1995 - year of the acquisition - has turned the estate into one of the most famous ones of coastal Chianti. The Poggio al Casone estate hosts the experimental vineyards of the University of Pisa dedicated to the research and preservation of local varieties.
