    Vinsanto del Chianti DOC Castelgreve 2017
  • We are accustomed, wrongly, to think of Vinsanto only as a little glass at the end of a meal, perhaps combined with the classic cantuccino biscuit with almonds. The reality is that the traditional Tuscan Vinsanto is, as in this case, a much more interesting product, which deserves to be enhanced with a few simple considerations. Served at room temperature (never over 18 degrees, however) it is in fact an excellent end to a meal. It also goes well with the classic traditional dry biscuits, even if it deserves to be tasted separately to appreciate all its more delicate notes. Served cooler, however, around 12 degrees, it is a fabulous aperitif. A great alternative that will amaze friends and family. The one proposed here by Castelli di Grevepesa is a Chianti Classico Vinsanto produced with Trebbiano and Malvasia del Chianti grapes, harvested when fully ripe and then left to dry on reeds. After vinification, the delicate phase of maturation takes place in oak barrels, kept, as tradition dictates, in non-heat-controlled rooms. A long process that guarantees the wine to develop its unique and inimitable personality.

    There is no area more fascinating and full of history and tradition than Chianti. And a piece of this history is linked to the name of Castelli del Grevepesa. We are in San Casciano Val di Pesa, about fifteen kilometres from Florence, right at the gateway to the Chianti Classico region. Here, in 1965, a group of 18 winegrowers created a new reality. United by a single dream, that of keeping intact the secular traditions of Tuscan viticulture, the territory and the peasant customs. In order to do so, the focus is now on the production of high quality wines, in compliance with the strict rules of the Black Rooster Consortium. Since then, a lot of wine has passed through the jars of the Cantina, which over the years has grown to its current capacity of about 120 member companies, with vineyards that extend mainly in the municipalities of Greve in Chianti, San Casciano Val di Pesa (Mercatale Val di Pesa), Tavarnelle Val di Pesa and Barberino Val d'Elsa. The range has clearly expanded and now includes wines from all the major regional appellations. From Chianti and Chianti Classico, to Vernaccia, Nobile di Montepulciano and even includes a Maremma line, with Vermentino, Rosato and Morellino. But there's no shortage of goodies. Even if the dimensions have changed, the passion that is put into the work of every day is unchanged.
