Montalbano is one of the eight subzones of the Chianti DOCG, enjoying a deserved reputation for the rich aromas and velvety smoothness of its wines. The vineyards of Castra are planted in sandy-silt soils with sandstone-derived gravel-pebble texture, conditions that encourage the development of volatile substances and aromas in the fruit. Our vineyards, airy and south-aspected, are at an altitude of about 250 metres. Rainfall is not abundant, but it is evenly distributed and fosters even ripening. Extreme care in vineyard and cellar ensures wine quality of artisanal standards, produced with full respect for nature and man.
