Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby red tending to garnet color. The aromas are fine, with delicate hints of violets. The taste is balanced, dry and well-structured with a velvety mouthfeel.

It goes well with traditional dishes rich in flavor, and with grilled meats and cheeses.

About Castello D'Albola:

The Castello d'Albola estate is situated above the town of Radda, nearly 2,000 feet above sea level, in the heart of the Chianti Classico region in the province of Siena, Tuscany. Established in the 11th century, Castello d'Albola was initially owned by the Monterinaldi family. Over the centuries it was transferred to the Samminiati, Pazzi and Ginori-Conti families, and finally to the Zonin family.
