Tre Bicchieri Gambero Rosso Toscana: Chianti Classico DOCG Riserva 2016 by Castello di Albola has been awarded by the prestigious Gambero Rosso wine guide with the three glasses award. A wine born from a selection of the best grapes from eight different vineyards on the Estate. Each of which gives the wine a particular nuance of Sangiovese, vinified on its own.
An award that testifies the quality of 2016 vintage that has been an excellent one: characterized by ideal climatic conditions during all the phenological phases of the vine. A mild winter and a spring with average seasonal temperatures were followed by a relatively warm summer with moderate rainfall at regular intervals, which ensured the vines had sufficient water reserves during the crucial ripening phase. The marked temperature variations and constant breezes also helped to keep the Castello di Albola vineyards dry and the Sangiovese grapes to reach the harvest in perfect condition. Our Chianti Classico 2016 is a red that stands out for its remarkable aromatic finesse and very well-balanced body.

Congratulations to Alessandro and his team!
