Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Santa Caterina takes its name from a single
vineyard covering just a little more than five hectares on a south-facing slope, at
an average altitude of 550 metres. It is a privileged parcel due to the composition
of the soil, rich in galestro (a rocky, schistous clay soil), and to the quality of the
Sangiovese grapes grown there. Vinified from a single variety, with a long ageing
period in wood barrels, they turn into a shiny wine in the glass, with an
invigorating scent and a strong, long-lasting taste that encapsulates the very soul
of Castello di Albola.
