Fattoria di Rodáno is a top source for classically made, user-friendly and complex Chianti. Located in Castellina in the heart of the Chianti Classico district, the estate dates back as a wine-producing property to the sixteenth century, belonging to the Pozzesi family ever since that time.
They have a picturesque and relatively small, family-run, artisanal estate with outrageous views throughout their property including the beautiful, south-facing amphitheater vineyard of Viacosta, from which they make their flagship Chianti Classico. They also had the pleasure of calling the legendary Chianti winemaker Guilio Gambelli their own, up until his death in 2012.
Now owner, Enrique Pozzesi handles the winemaking- blessed with the many of the teachings of Gambelli as well as his secret weapon, his Poggialupi Super Tuscan. When Rodano doesn’t play by the rules is when they are at their best. The secret to the this Super Tuscan is a little bit of Merlot, giving the wine no rough edges. It’s bright, it’s full-bodied and it’s absolutely delicious. Easily one of the best values in all of Tuscany. Take my word on this one and give it a try.
