The Castellani Family produce classic wines in Tuscany since more than 150 years. Every generation continually experiment with their vineyards and cellars in order to select the best Tuscan wines to be bottled under the family brand. Exporters of wine since 1903, the Castellani family have founded their high-quality wines on the belief that “the quality of the wine starts in the vineyard”. For the past 25 years, the family has worked hard to refine the soil types and microclimates that enhance their ‘great Tuscan vines’, investing in research and new technologies to ensure the Castellani name continues to be associated with ‘memorable wines’.
Famiglia Castellani Poggio al Casone La Cattura is one of the few Italian reds we’ve featured whose primary varietal is Teroldego. Normally found in Trentino (Northern Italy) the varietal is finding a new home among the sunny foothills and expanse of vineyards in Tuscany. What we love about Teroldego is the beautiful aromatics, complexity and structure with lower alcohol content (12.5%). It’s an expression of organic viticulture. Medium-bodied, fresh, velvety with well-integrated tannins, and 12 months in French oak. We really enjoyed this bottle with chicken parmigiana. In a picture-perfect vintage, this Italian red is a standout for the price!
