Beautiful, perfumed Chianti from the Castelnuovo Berardenga UGA of Chianti Classico

At the end of the 1990s, the Bolfo family began renovations on the ruins of a 17C convent and its surrounding vineyards within the UGA of Castelnuovo Berardenga, to the Siena end of the Chianti Classico area. The estate is quite large – 265 hectares including 105 hectares under vine – with various terroirs but generally a comparatively high altitude at between 380 and 440m asl. The soil therefore less alluvial than much of the region, with more limestone, schist and alberese gravel/sand. The soil type and altitude deliver wines with more lifted perfume and leaner structure than our other Chianti wines. The estate is sustainably run, with the expansive grounds housing an extensive and diverse ecosystem, a gradual progression to the abolition of herbicides and a modern, gravity-flow winery.

We bring in both Vallepicciola’s Chianti Classico and Chianti Classico Riserva wines, etheral wines with great finesse and balance. The Riserva in particular is well-placed for longevity.
