This picturesque estate lies in the commune of San Casciano, just outside of Florence. Joshi Goldschimdt is a farmer first; his pristine vineyards contain Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines, averaging 25 years in age. The vines are tended organically, the grapes, hand harvested.
Generous use of small barrels in vinification barely tame the exuberant, broad fruit quality of his wines, and the firm, large-scaled tannic structure in them makes them suitable for extended aging. The aromas are wonderfully complex and delicate, showcasing Corzano e Paterno’s incredible terroir, exemplary farming techniques and non-interventive vinification practices.
The family’s newly released 2019 Chianti is the result of a great harvest in Italy in the 2019 vintage with ideal conditions and no bad weather. This allowed for a lush, silky Chianti that’s just packed with red and black fruits and has just enough backbone to make it the perfect companion for just about any food dish. But this medium bodied delight is also a great spring sipper out on the deck in a glass by itself.
The 2017 Chianti has juicy fruit with just enough backbone to make it the perfect companion pizza, pasta with mushrooms, grilled beef or sheep cheeses.
