Marks and reviews
Founded in 1968 following the merger of 5 estates, Castellare di Castellina is one of Italy's finest wine producers. Renowned for their quality, the estate's wines derive their uniqueness both from their exceptional terroir and from their label, whose bird represents the estate's deep respect for its surrounding nature.
Coniale 2008 from Castellare di Castellina was founded in the midst of rolling vineyards in the hills of Tuscany. Currently covering 80 hectares at an altitude of 350-400 metres, the vines benefit from a unique microclimate that combines Mediterranean influences with cooler temperatures. The soil composition is dominated by Galestro and Alberese, two types of schistose clay typical of the region. The topographical variety and distinct terroir contribute to the production of exquisite wines, celebrated for their elegance and complexity.
