100% Sangiovese. Die besten Parzellen unserer Weinberge werden 24 Monate in Eichenfässern gereift. Der Name unseres Riserva leitet sich von den alten toskanischen Steinterrassen ab, die das Erscheinungsbild der Weinberge und des Weinguts prägen.

Zertifiziert biologisch IT BIO 006


Aged for 24 months in neutral french oak barriques and tonneaux, before being refined in the bottle for a minimum of twelve months.


Each year, we make a selection of our 19 crus that create our Riserva. Often Leccio Alto, Labirinto Sud, Labirinto Ovest, and Ginestrini Alti were chosen to be part of our Riserva. 

Form of Growing



Grapes are picked by hand in small boxes. Alcoholic fermentation is spontaneous with natural yeasts in 1 ton vats. The extraction of color and tannins is facilitaed by punching down. Maceration of skins is occuring very delicately: Berries are falling from the destemmer directly into the vats without passing through a pump or tubes, hence remaining intact and crush solely due to the weight of berries themselves. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barriques.

Sangiovese, long misunderstood and blended with other grape varieties, has only been vinified on its own for a few decades. The greatness and potential of Sangiovese is fascinating: Similarly to Pinot Noir, it is very difficult to grow and vinify, as well as incredibly sensitive to the location it is grown in. Although the vineyards at Castagnoli are very close together, the fruit that they produce can show remarkable differences. Therefore, we divided our eleven hectares of vineyards into 19 different parcels, which we harvest, ferment and vinify separately.The best crus of Castagnoli are selected for the Riserva Terrazze.

Jancis Robinson

17,5 Points: "Mid to deep ruby. Richness and lift on the nose. Quite eye-catching. Supple and rich fruit cut through by lots of tangy acidity. Very long, dramatic and energetic. 2020 - 2034"

James Suckling

91 Points: "This has a wealth of ripe, red cherries, as well as spicy, earthy aromas. Dried cherries and red plums also show on the palate, which has plenty of sweet, mellow tannins. Some leather to close. Drink or hold."


92 Points: "Dark, deep Ruby. Cherry candy, strawberry cotton candy and cinamon on the nose. Meltingly elegant, juicy and clear with integrated acidity, impressive into the finish, independent."

Jancis Robinson

17,5 Points: "Healthy mid ruby. Great nose of ripe cherry, raspberry coulis and hints of cinnamon bark. Gorgeous freshness and concentration of fruit on the palate and firm, finely built tannins. Full spread of fruit on the finish. 2020 - 2030"
