Castellare di Castellina Winery

View all from Castellare di Castellina Winery
The Castellare estate is one of the best examples of tradition in the area. The winery's owner, Paolo Panerai, has closely studied the world's best wineries and applied this understanding and experience to viticulture in Italy.

The Castellare property, located in Tuscany's Castellina in Chianti, has become a virtual refuge for wildlife, including many of the birds pictured on their labels. With each vintage, the Castellare label shows a different bird, symbolizing the estate's commitment to environmentally sound cultivation. The birds selected for the labels are among the rarest creatures in Chianti, and represent birds threatened by extinction, mostly due to synthetic chemical products and hunting, both of which are forbidden on this property.

Lovely

"We like Chianti and this is a good one! If you enjoy Chiantis this is a tasty one at a good price. We would order this again."

Great Chianti

"This was opened as a followup to another wine after dinner. It was wonderfully balanced between fruitiness and acidity. Can enjoy with food or on its own, and tastes better as the wine opens up... to the last drop."
