1998 Castell’in Villa Poggio delle Rose


“Chianti Classico does not get any better or any more traditional than this” – Ian d’Agata Vinous Media.

Castell’in Villa is one of the most historic estates in Chianti Classico. Princess Coralia Pignatelli della Leonessa and her husband purchased the property in 1968, with no intention of producing wine. Now half a century later Princess Coralia owns 300 hectares, of which 54 hectares are planted to vine. 

“The 1998 Chianti Classico Riserva Poggio delle Rose impresses for its overall balance and impeccable harmony. On paper, 1998 doesn’t have the reputation of either 1996 or especially 1997, the most touted vintage of the decade. That doesn’t stop it from being flat-out great. The integration of fruit, acidity, oak and tannin is simply marvelous. Sweet red berries, flowers, mint and leather are woven together in this effortless, gracious wine. This is a tremendous showing from an overlooked vintage” – 94 points, Vinous
