Cru Project of Castello di Meleto, in which the most significant vineyards of the estate are enhanced in their peculiarities thanks to a viticulture in detail, which allows the creation of great wines:
Vigna Casi Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2017,
Vigna Poggiarso Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2017 DOCG
Camboi IGT Toscana Rosso 2018.
Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG
Vigna Casi is the vocation of a single vineyard in bottle.
A wine made exclusively from Sangiovese grapes coming from the Casi vineyard, which encompasses all its characteristics. It is an elegant, sinuous and charming Gran Selezione where the variety of aromas is matched with balance and persistence of aromas. Every sip renews the amazement and it is one of the best expressions of Meleto.
Vigna Poggiarso is our new Gran Selezione.
Obtained exclusively from Sangiovese grapes, but coming from the Poggiarso vineyard. It is a vibrant, straightforward and bold Gran Selezione where the intensity of the aromas is combined with a crispness of flavors and a true acidity. An uncompromising wine that gives voice to the vineyard of origin, rich in rock and perched on a hill 560 meters above sea level.
Chianti Classico 2018 DOCG
This Chianti Classico is the soul of Meleto as the Sangiovese grape expresses itself purely and is a true embodiment of the territory from which it comes. It is a traditional Chianti Classico, where the use of only large wood barrels in ageing allows the varietal to express itself at its best.
Chianti Classico 2017 DOCG
Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG
Chianti Classico Riserva is the result of the selection of the best hand-picked grapes, from the 5 sub-zones of Casi, Meleto, Poggiarso, Moci and San Pietro. The result is a combination that best holds together the real soul of Meleto, the variety of its terroir and its microclimates and the magnificent complexity of the most iconic wine in the area: the Sangiovese.
The Castello di Meleto Chianti Classico Gran Selezione is the greatest expression of our single-varietal Sangiovese. This is a limited production wine coming from individual parcels located within the Casi and San Piero vineyards. The constant minerality present in our wines is matched here by a gentle power, extraordinary both on the nose and palate. This wine has a great capacity for ageing; only time will reveal its unique characteristics.
Meleto Special 50th anniversary
Chianti Classico DOCG
Per celebrare il nostro 50° Anniversario dalla fondazione della Viticola Toscana, è stata realizzata un’edizione limitata del Chianti Classico DOCG 2016 selezionando le migliori uve di Sangiovese, provenienti da ciascuna delle cinque macro-aree in cui è stata divisa la proprietà (Meleto, San Piero, Casi, Poggiarso e Moci).
del Chianti Classico DOC
The Chianti tradition of our Vinsanto begins with a special method of harvesting the grapes. This technique allows us to hang the bunches vertically within our stunning vinsantaia, thus beginning the natural drying process. Trebbiano is used in addition to a small selection of Sangiovese and Malvasia. After the drying, vinification takes place in partially filled caratelli and is followed by a very long aging period before the golden nectar is ready to be tasted.
IGT Toscana Rosso
Camboi is the acronym for Campo dei Buoi, an area of Meleto that was used for the breeding of oxen from the Middle Ages to the early 1960s. In the 1970s Malvasia Nera del Chianti vines were planted in this same area, which today produces a unique wine. Camboi is the latest creation from Castello di Meleto, but it is quickly making a name for itself within the lineup. This wine is challenging to categorize as it is quite rare for the Italian wine scene. The Malvasia family is a boundless one yet it is very difficult to find a single-varietal Malvasia Nera del Chianti as historically it has always been used in blends with other Tuscan native varieties.
Fiore is our tribute to Merlot – a single-varietal wine produced in the characteristic Chianti style. This is a wine of character with unique and surprising features.
IGT Toscana Rosato
Rosato Virginia, produced purely from Canaiolo grapes. This variety has ancient origins, presumably cultivated by the Romans but only recently rediscovered. Virginia 2017 is produced from grapes grown between 450-500 meters above sea level on a plot within the San Piero Vineyard. The Canaiolo is harvested completely by hand and aged in both steel and cement tanks for six months. With a lovely pale rose color, this wine is characterized by notes of strawberry and sour cherry and the finish leaves a pleasant freshness on the palate.
The Rosato is part of the Borgaio line which consists of pleasant and ready-to-drink wines designed for everyday consumption. Rosato is produced exclusively from Sangiovese grapes. Castello di Meleto is focusing in particular on this variety and embarking on an interesting path of qualitative growth. As such, the younger vines and those positioned in cooler areas have been destined for the production of this wine.
This red is part of the Borgaio line which consists of pleasant and ready-to-drink wines designed for everyday consumption. The characteristics of Sangiovese blend perfectly with those of Merlot, giving life to a harmonious and balanced wine making it enjoyable and versatile in its pairing.
IGT Toscana Bianco
The Vermentino is part of the Borgaio line which consists of pleasant and ready-to-drink wines designed for everyday consumption. Vermentino is one of the many wagers made by Castello di Meleto: this grape, typical of the Tuscan, Ligurian and Sardinian coast, has found at Castello di Meleto ideal conditions that give life to a wine full of aromas and minerality.
Colto alle Bolle
A blend of Sangiovese and Pinot Noir produced using the Martinotti method, Colto all Bolle is a lively, palate-pleasing sparkling wine. The marriage between the king grape of Tuscany, Sangiovese, and the elegant Pinot Noir creates a wine with fresh, vernal aromas, delicate on the palate and yet delightfully zesty.
Olio Extra Vergine di Oliva
Il nostro olio extravergine di oliva biologico nasce dalle olive raccolte a mano fra i circa 1.600 olivi secolari all’ombra del Castello di Meleto. Le olive vengono frante nella stessa giornata della raccolta: solo così otteniamo un olio fruttato, acido al punto giusto, leggermente piccante, dalle eccellenti qualità organolettiche e nutrizionali.
