This superstar super-Tuscan is a blockbuster! Rich, concentrated and muscular, yet wonderfully balanced with deep tiers of cherry, plums and wild berries, and nuances of spice and currants. A long flavorful aftertaste echoes with juicy fruit and mouthwatering tannins for minutes afterwards.

Castelnuovo Beraradenga is the jewel of the Chianti Classico region, capable of producing wines of power and elegance, intensity and longevity.

In this exceptional land, Tolaini Estate's vineyards cover 160 acres of the estate's 267 acres. The Montebello vineyard has signature galestro (friable clay and limestone) soils. The San Giovanni vineyard has more porous tufa soils. Both sites overlie limestone to create outstanding conditions for long-term vine growth.

Shortly after purchase of the property in 1998, the soils were nutritionally rebalanced, the vineyards were completely replanted with tailored vine clones, and a state of the art winery was built.

New vines include international varieties that have flourished in Tuscany: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. Vines also include excellent clones of the classic Tuscan variety Sangiovese. Vineyards are planted to high density—some as high as 11,800 vines per hectare (4800/acre).
