sumptuous and elegant with finely-tuned acidity and excellent persistence on the palate.

Acciaiolo is: a sumptuous interpretation, of the expressive force of the soils around Castello di Albola: a meticulous selection of: Cabernet Sauvignon grapes confers character and elegance, while a small percentage of Sangiovese from a single vineyard of old vines underpins its most authentic nu-ances.

In the ancient lands of Castello di Albola, once ruled by the noble Houses of Tuscany, namely the Pazzi, the Acciaiuoli and the Ginori Conti, the vine has flourished for centuries, and in the sublime beauty of these landscapes it yields perfect fruit.

The high altitude, the diversity and suitability of the soils for wine growing, and the perfect exposure form a unified whole, a ‘radiant jewel’ that shines with its own light against the glittering treasure trove that is Chianti Classico, with its sloping hillside vineyards, historic buildings and artistic treasures.

This outstanding Estate requires daily dedication and constant care, and rewards those who love it with wines that are truly extraordinary: striving to match the splendour of: Castello di Albola, they are authentic and seductive – and demand devotion and thoughtful meditation.
