Description

La Castellina is located in the borough of Castellina in Chianti. The estate was founded by the aristocratic Squarcialupi family and vineyards have been cultivated at the estate since the middle ages. 1984 was a key year for Chianti Classico as the DOCG production code was first introduced. It was shortly afterwards, in 1989, that Monica Targioni and her husband Tommaso Bojola took over and the “rebirth” of Fattoria La Castellina began. In 1998 a modern cellar near the village was bought, however the cellars for ageing the wine remain at the restored Squarcialupi Palace. The grapes for this wine come form 3 hectares of south-facing vineyards at a height of 350m. The Reale is 100% Merlot which is aged approximately 10 months in second and first-fill barriques and tonneaux French Allier barrels. It is then aged 6 months in bottle prior to release.Try with roasted meat, game or cheeses such as pecorino.
