Castello d'Albola Chianti Classico 2015
The estate is also a stunning example of Tuscan Renaissance architecture. The Zonin family owns important vineyard sites across the Italian peninsula, but this property is where Gianni Zonin, his wife and three sons enjoy an intimate family connection. With some of the most historically important vineyards in the Chianti Classico denomination, Castello d’Albola represents the tip of the Zonin- quality pyramid. The 2011 vintage was named TOP 100 WINE OF THE YEAR 2015 #46

DecanterGold Medal : Sweet vanilla oak, chestnuts, blackberries and meaty characters mingle beautifully on the nose. The palate displays clean fruit, smooth tannins and an immaculate long finish. Polished and well made, with an old-school feel.
Wine SpectatorRich and lively, this exudes cherry, strawberry, floral and woodsy aromas and flavors. Firm yet nicely proportioned, with a long, fruit- and tobacco-tinged aftertaste. Best from 2021 through 2036.
James SucklingThe palate has lots of rose water, nutmeg and blood oranges. Medium to full body, succulent tannins and a juicy finish. Drink now.
