Fattoria Rodáno has produced a bright, attractive and honest wine in this warm vintage. The 2015 Chianti Classico drinks with smooth ease and spreads warmly over the palate. The wine is infused with dark plum, cherry, spice and pressed rose. There is considerable weight and substance at the back, yet the wine is never heavy or too thick.

From vineyards in Castellina in Chianti with South, southwest orientation on limestone soils. Hand-harvested. No use selected yeast. Aged for 28 months in large Slavonian botte.

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. Rodáno has belonged to the Pozzesi family since that time. Vittorio Pozzesi had been in charge of the estate since they first began to bottle wine on their own in 1967 but now his son, Enrico, handles the management of the winery. The domaine’s former winemaker was Guilio Gambelli, who passed away in 2012. Gambelli was one of the most legendary winemakers in Chianti, consulting for such estates as Montevertine and Gianfranco Soldera. Rodáno is quite a large estate, with more than a hundred hectares under vine, and is one of the best-kept secrets in all of Tuscany. The style of the Rodáno Chianti bottlings is quite traditional, with Sangiovese playing a dominant role in all of the estate’s various bottlings. The Chianti Classico "normale" is aged entirely in large Slovenian "botte". Like all great traditional Sangiovese-based wines, the Rodáno wines offer up lovely, bright acidity that adds freshness and focus on the palate, and makes them outstanding partners at the table. The heart and soul of their vineyard holdings is the beautifully situated vineyard of Viacosta, which is a perfect, south-facing bowl of old vines, that average between thirty-five and forty-five years of age.
