Click to view a fascinating look at Chianti Classico and specifically Castelnuovo Berardenga.
"When Lia Tolaini's father, Pier Luigi Tolaini, returned to his native Tuscany, he chose Chianti Classico and specifically Castelnuovo Berardenga to make wine because he believed that it was special. Tolaini today makes one Chianti Classico and three I.G.T wines. Their Chianti Classico riserva is a 100 per cent single vineyard sangiovese. Lia believes the true expression of Chianti Classico can only be found in pure sangiovese. For that reason they only label Chianti Classico their single vineyard pure sangiovese."
