Wine Interest & Activities
Poggio al Casone is one of the most beautiful Estates owned by
the Castellani Family, Tuscan wine producers since the age of
Dante and protagonist of the worldwide success of one of the
greatest wines in history, the Chianti. POGGIO AL CASONE is a
Chianti Superiore D.O.C.G. Castellani estate located in the
commune of Crespina in Tuscany’s Colline Pisane.
The estate is comprised of 3 vineyards: Vigna Gobba, Vigna degli
Apostoli, and L’Angolo d’Oro. The vineyards are planted to the
native Sangiovese, Canaiolo, and Ciliegiolo grapes. The
established international varietals Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah
are also cultivated. Additionally, with the University of Pisa,
the Castellanis have established an experimental vineyard
dedicated to propagating and studying ancient native clones
(autochthon)—such as the rare Mazzese Giacomino, of which 400
vines are found on the estate.
Presently Poggio al Casone produces a Chianti Superiore. As
recently planted vineyards mature, production will include both
a Syrah and a Super-Tuscan blend. The Poggio al Casone estate
also includes a brand new winery and visitor center. In this
facility, more than anywhere else, the Castellani family will
present its public face.
Poggio al Casone, a unique, exquisite property, is a prime
example of both the ongoing Tuscan renaissance and the
Castellani family’s long-term commitment to quality.
