Chianti Classico, Volpaia 2020
From the heart of the Classico region, this has a fantastic combination of enchanting bouquet and deftly balanced fruit. The vineyard is at high altitude, which goes some way to explain the remarkable finesse and fine, well-integrated tannins which support and lift the wine’s red-berry, balsamic and spice flavours.

Castello di Volpaia
The vineyards of Volpaia, located between 1,000 and 1,750 feet, are among the highest of the Chianti region. They have benefitted greatly from recent warmer vintages, but remain known for their freshness and elegance. Owner Giovanella Stianti used to sell to The Wine Society in the seventies and the older vintages kept beautifully. She is now joined by daughter Federica.
