Castello di Volpaia Chianti Classico 2021


I’ve had to be careful with my allocations from Volpaia. A few years ago, it seemed I always had enough to go around but after being named Wine of the Year & receiving the highest Wine Spectator rating ever for a Chianti (even outpointing the 2010 Castello di Ama with its’ $400+ price tag), I’ve tried every trick in the book to not sell out too quickly.

This year, I even took every bottle of the 2021 Chianti Classico that they would part with – but I’m sure it won’t be nearly enough. With 92 points from Wine Spectator at today’s great price point, I’m sure this won’t last long.

The 2021 Castello di Volpaia Chianti Classico is an absolute stunner and is my early runner for Italian Wine of the Year. Drawn from high-elevation, organic vineyards – this one features complex aromas that one would expect from a wine three times the cost.

92 Points, Wine Spectator
A racy version, this boasts black cherry, blueberry, violet and iron flavors. A firm line of tannins works in concert with the acidity, while flashes of Mediterranean scrub peek through. Mouthwatering finish. Sangiovese and Merlot. Drink now through 2032.
