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.
