Castello d'Albola Chianti Classico Riserva 2011

SKU 39254


Made from the finest Sangiovese grapes of the estate, this wine matures in oak for two years. Its tannins give the wine its extraordinary texture: they are as concentrated as the fruit is mellow. It has a distinct tangy quality on the palate and rich fruit on the nose, with evolved tones of fruit and dried flowers. It is a wine that expresses perfectly the terroir of Chianti Classico, whose very landscape it captures in the bottle. One can detect the high-altitude vineyards in its finesse, the heat of the earth in its depth and the nuances of woodlands in its extraordinarily persistent bouquet. It is a wine to serve with succulent, rich dishes, to be drunk with respect for history but also with the joy of discovery.

Wine SpectatorA beefy, sinewy red, whose cherry, almond and vanilla flavors permeate the dense texture. The finish veers toward the rustic side. Best from 2017 through 2024. 10,000 cases made.
