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.
92 Points: "Impressive richness and soft, fleshy, ripe red and dark cherries on the palate. This has some silky style for Sangiovese, together with lovely, fleshy drive. Drink or hold."
90 Points: "Lively, bright ruby red. Reserved nose, with shy red fruit. On the palate firm with sweet tannins and lively acidity, hearty, long and harmonic finish."
