Chianti Classico DOCG named "Lodolaio" was born in a terroir that is unique in the world for its microclimate and soil characteristics from Sangiovese grapes resulting from the reproduction of a selection of vines of ancient origins, a real company treasure. It is a vintage reserve aged in the ancient cellar of Castelvecchi, under the vaults of the millennial castle.
Making wine is a special activity. In order to produce the best possible wine, it is fundamental to mature a long experience about harvests. Roberto Paladin - Owner
On the highest hills of Radda in Chianti in Siena province, man and nature have selected the best clones, adapted to the terroir, to produce today's Chianti Classico DOCG, Chianti Classico DOCG vintage reserve and Chianti Classico Great Selection. The very old vines, made of thick and gnarled plants, climbing arduous and stony soils, produce few bunches, but give true nectar. These wines mature in the shade of the millennial Fattoria di Castelvecchi's canteen, a fortress founded around 1043 on a site much older, even dating to the Roman era.
The magic and the poetry of these wines that are mainly, if not solely, obtained from Sangiovese grapes, are guaranteed by the story of the Fattoria. Among the great, ancient barrels, you can breathe the scent of passing time and ageing wine; pure pleasure for very very lucky palates.
