On land that has supported winegrapes for seven centuries, Tenuta di Nozzole produces wines that respect both tradition and innovation: Chianti Classicos ranging from traditional to fruit-forward, and an IGT Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Located north of the village of Greve at Passo dei Pecorai, the Nozzole estate is located in an impressively rugged mountainous area of melancholy beauty and covers roughly 1,000 acres, of which approximately a third are planted in vines and olive groves. The Folonari family purchased the estate in 1971 from Letizia Rimediotti-Mattioli and her husband, who had been producing wine for the Folonaris on the land for several years.


A renowned red made from at least 80% Sangiovese grapes, Chianti Classico boasts a rich history dating back to the 13th century in the heart of Toscana. Sangiovese has always been the primary grape for this full-bodied red wine, harvested in mid-September to mid-October from vines that grow in soils rich in clay and limestone.

What makes Chianti Classico so special? Its remarkable versatility sets it apart from other wines. Lightly spicy, balanced, and dry, with notes of cherry and plum, this ruby red wine has the power to cut through rich, fatty main courses as well as simple pasta dishes. Try this wine with your next antipasto board of salumi and formaggi or with comforting dishes like ribollita or pici all'aglione for a meal made in Toscana.
