Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Santa Caterina takes its name from a single vineyard covering just a little more than five hectares on a south-facing slope, at an average altitude of 550 metres. It is a privileged parcel due to the composition of the soil, rich in galestro (a rocky, schistous clay soil), and to the quality of the Sangiovese grapes grown there. Vinified from a single variety, with a long ageing period in wood barrels, they turn into a shiny wine in the glass, with an invigorating scent and a strong, long-lasting taste that encapsulates the very soul of Castello di Albola

ABOUT Castello Di Albola

Steeped in history, Castello di Albola can trace its ownership back to the 12th century and has passed through the hands of some of Tuscany’s most important and infuential noble families. The estate’s goal is to maintain this style and level of quality, so that their wines reflect the authenticity of their historic cellars, where one can find fine wines that have been ageing for decades and yet still have a taste of almost unreal freshness. Castello di Albola captures the essence of the Sangiovese variety with its often subtle and austere tones, capable of delighting all those who care to unlock its fascinating secrets.
