Don Vincenzo Toscano Rosso IGT from Fattoria Casaloste

Connoisseurs and lovers of Fattoria Casaloste already know that for several years there have been two Gran Selezione wines. On the one hand the Chianti Classico Gran Selezione "Casaloste" and on the other hand the Gran Selezione with the sounding name Don Vincenzo. But that is up to the vintage 2015 with which Giovanni d'Orsi, owner of Fattoria Casaloste, has decided to classify Don Vincenzo as an IGT. However, nothing has changed in terms of content and method of production: 100 percent Sangiovese grapes from a special vineyard facing west. The grapes are handpicked and vinified in steel tanks. The fermentation process takes place in French oak barrels and lasts from 18 to 24 months. At the end the wine is left to rest and mature in the bottle for another more year. The caracter of the wine reflects the great personality of Don Vincenzo: it is named after the father of Giovanni d'Orsi. And as an IGT the Don Vincenzo remains great with its taste: low acidity, perfectly balanced, velvety tannins and long, long, long finish... Everything as it should be.

Fattoria Casaloste: organic wines of the highest quality

In addition to Don Vincenzo - which is available as a Gran Selezione up to the vinatge 2015 and as an IGT fom then on - there is a second Gran Selezione from Casaloste: Chianti Classico Gran Selezione "Casaloste", which is also produced from 100 percent Sangiovese grapes, but from different vineyards. The Chianti Classico accounts for the biggest part of their wine production. The 90 percent Sangiovese share is rounded off with ten percent Merlot. The Chianti Classico Riserva from Casaloste has an even higher share of Sangiovese: 95 percent Sangiovese and five percent Merlot - sometimes still mixed with other varieties. Exactly the other way round - i.e. inverse - is the mixing ratio of Inversus Toscana IGT. Thus the name and the very special taste experience: 90 percent Merlot and ten percent Sangiovese are used for this wine. But all these wines have one thing in common: they all have been certified organic  since 1994! Because Casaloste was the first winery in Panzano to be officially certified organic by the ICEA (Istituto per la Certificazione Etica ed Ambientale)! And Emilia and Giovanni are especially proud of that!

The uncrowned queen of Casaloste: her Majesty the Sangiovese

The Casaloste winery owns a total of 19 hectares of land. The vines grow and thrive on an area of ten and a half hectares. Compared to many other wineries in and around Panzano in Chianti, at Casaloste the vines are situated at slightly lower locations. The uncrowned queen - the autochthonous grape variety Sangiovese - is undoubtedly the centre of attention at Casaloste with a share of around 85 percent. In addition, Merlot, Ancelotta and Canaiolo still account for a small proportion of the vineyards. Casaloste bottles in total around 60,000 bottles of wine per year, which is however quite impressive. This is because Casaloste wines are repeatedly awarded the best ratings in the international wine press and receive excellent reviews from numerous experts from all over the world. And how could it be otherwise?! In addition numerous olive trees grow here on an area of about two hectares, and a wonderful olive oil is pressed from their fruits. And of course this Olio Extra Vergine di Oliva is 100 percent organic as well.

Fattoria Casaloste: Ein Wein-Kleinod in Panzano in Chianti

Biegt man in den sanft geschwungenen, von einer kleinen Steinmauer gesäumten Weg ein, ahnt man noch nicht, welches kleine, aber feine Weingut einem hier inmitten der Hügel von Panzano in Chianti erwartet. Inhaber dieses Weinguts, das sich mit selbst mit dem Leitsatz „La piccola fattoria dei grandi vini“ – also das kleine Weingut der großen Weine – beschreibt, ist Giovanni Battista d’Orsi.

Gemeinsam mit seiner Frau Emilia führt der gelernte Agronom und Önologe die Fattoria Casaloste. Die beiden stammen aus Neapel, und haben während eines Besuchs im Chianti Classico das Wein-Juwel Casaloste entdeckt und 1992 gekauft. 

Die Weine, die aus diesen erstklassigen Bio-Weintrauben gekeltert werden, können sich durchaus sehen lassen: An vorderster Stelle steht natürlich der Chianti Classico, der zu 90 Prozent aus Sangiovese und zehn Prozent Merlot hergestellt wird. Gefolgt von der Chianti Classico Riserva, die zu 95 Prozent Sangiovese besteht – abgerundet mit einer Mischung aus fünf Prozent Merlot und anderen Sorten. Erst seit dem Jahrgang 2011 gibt es die Chianti Classico Gran Selezione „Casaloste“, die zu 100 Prozent aus Sangiovese aus unterschiedlichen Lagen gekeltert wird. Aus einer Einzellage kommen die Trauben für den Chianti Classico Gran Selezione „Don Vincenzo“, den es bereits seit dem Jahrgang 2009 gibt. Der Inversus Toscana IGT hält, was sein Name verspricht. Er ist nämlich von der Zusammensetzung her das genaue Gegenteil des Chianti Classico: 90 Prozent Merlot und zehn Prozent Sangiovese kommen dafür zum Einsatz.

What other people think about 2010 Don Vincenzo Chianti Classico Gran Selezione from Casaloste ...

Veronelli 3Sternerot
Bibenda 4Trauben
Wine Spectator 91 points "Dense and linear, showing cherry, cedar, leather, vanilla and mineral aromas and flavors. Still tightly coiled, this needs food to match the vibrant structure. 330 cases made." – BS  
James Suckling 93 points "A soft and fruity red with dried cherry, mineral and walnut character. Full body, round tannins and balsamic and berry aftertaste. Made from organic grapes. Drink or hold."
Vinous 87 points "The 2010 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Don Vincenzo replaces the slightly rustic elements found in the Riserva with softer contours, more extraction and copious amounts of new oak. There is striking purity to the fruit here, which makes it all the more disappointing to see that quality covered by a heavy handed approach in the cellar. I don't expect to see the 2010 age especially well." - Antonio Galloni
