Description

Fattoria di Rodáno is a top source for classically made, user-friendly and complex Chianti. Located in Castellina in the heart of the Chianti Classico district, the estate dates back as a wine-producing property to the sixteenth century, belonging to the Pozzesi family ever since that time. Vittorio Pozzesi had been in charge of the estate since they first began to bottle wine on their own in 1967 but now his son, Enrico, handles the management of the winery. The domaine’s former winemaker was Guilio Gambelli, who passed away in 2012. Gambelli was one of the most legendary winemakers in Chianti, consulting for such estates as Montevertine and Gianfranco Soldera. Rodáno is quite a large estate, with more than a hundred hectares under vine, and is one of the best-kept secrets in all of Tuscany.

Produced from organically grown grapes which are hand harvested, fermented on natural yeasts and aged for 15 months on Slavonian Oak.  unfined or filtered, the wine has a deep ruby colour with aromas and flavours of black cherry, blackberries with hints of spice. The fruit is well balanced  and elegant with a long persistent finish.

Perfect with Grilled Lamb, Meaty Pasta or Mature Hard Cheese.
