Comments

Castellina  in  Chianti  is located deeply  inside the classic area of Chianti production among  the  valley of the Elsa, Pesa and Arbia rivers.  The  finest  grapes from  the  sunniest hillside vineyards are selected  to  produce this wine.

It  is then aged for a minimum of two years in Slavonian oak barrels, in order to be described as a “RISERVA”.
