Vineyard: The estate of Castello d'Albola is situated in the Chianti Classico area in the province of Siena, Tuscany. The vineyards are situated at an average altitude of 500 metres (1,300 feet) above sea level, although at some points they attain a height of 1,640 feet. The soil consists primarily of the alberese and galestro limestone. Vinification and maturation: After removal of the stalks and crushing, the must is fermented for 12 days in contact with the skins in modern horizontal tanks that assure perfect conditions for vinification, allowing for greater skin contact and flavour concentration. Once the sugar has been converted to alcohol, the wine is racked into large Slavonian oak casks, where it matures and fines for 12 months. That is followed by fining in the bottle for a period of six months. Bottling is carried out in anticipation of release onto the market, with provision for the period of fining.
Technical notes
ALCOHOL LEVEL 13% vol.

Food pairing
It is a perfect accompaniment for the richly-flavored dishes of the traditional Chianti cuisine, as well as for grilled meats and mature cheeses.

Producer
Casa Vinicola Zonin is one of Italy’s most important privately-owned wine-producing companies and is also one of the foremost worldwide. It distributes and markets the still and sparkling wines under the Zonin label as well as those of the family’s nine Estates. Inspired by the principle “each region has its own traditions, each region has its own wines” Gianni Zonin has, since the end of the 1960s, been selecting outstanding terroirs, bringing Casa Vinicola Zonin to its present area under vine of around 2.000 hectares, supervised by a team of 32 oenologists and agronomists. These make up 9 Estates situated in Italy’s 7 finest Regions for wine production, as well as a property in the United States, Barboursville Vineyards in Virginia. Different production areas, each with its own specific terroir and its own peculiarities in terms of climate and morphology, the experience and professionalism of our agronomists and oenologists and the choice of dynamic business strategies: these are the most important values on which our company’s philosophy is based.
