Casaloste Chianti Classico DOCG 2016
Emilia d'Orsi's family estate, Casaloste is a wine farm in the hills of Panzano in Chianti, one of the most prestigious locations in the Chianti Classico region, halfway between Florence and Siena. The farm extends for 18 hectares of which 10 hectares of DOCG vineyards and 2 hectares of DOP olive trees. Owners Giovanni and Emilia oversee all aspects of farming and winemaking on the property, and the wines show their impeccable attention to detail.
The Chianti Classico Casaloste was produced for the first time with the vintage 1993 and since then has always respected the character of the younger Sangiovese, made elegant by the small note of Merlot. A wine that expresses the genuineness of the Tuscan conviviality, with lively but very pleasant tannins. The wine bears the original name of the stone tower, where the owners still live with their family: the name "Casaloste" has ancient origins that are lost in the past, when the building was used as a sighting tower.
