The winery was founded in 2003 and consists of 33 hectares of vineyards located in the heart of Chianti Classico, in one of the most historic municipalities of Chianti Classico. Its entire surface area falls under Chianti Classico denomination. The Beretta family - yes, those Berettas. Castello di Radda specialize in Sangioveses but also grow Canaiolo, Colorino and Merlot which they use for their Super Tuscan, Guss. As they strive to produce only the best wines, the have recently begun conversion to organic farming and hope to be a 100% purely organic vineyard in the near future.
Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"The climate of Radda is characterized by strong thermal excursions and never excessive maximum temperatures, favoring thus elegance of our wines. The soil is of a clayey-calcareous type more or less loose depending on the vineyard. The Merlot grapes come from the vineyards located in the cooler area of our hills; this particular microclimate avoids over-ripening of the grapes and guarantees the typical characteristics of roundness and pleasantness of a Merlot. The Sangiovese grapes, harvested from the younger Chianti Classico vineyards of Castello di Radda, give the wine the typical characteristic of freshness, refinement and elegance.

Alcoholic fermentation takes place in 75 an 100 hl stainless steel tanks with left on the skins for 10 days. Aging takes place partly in steel and partly in tonneaux. Bottling is then done in the following summer. Intense ruby - Fresh, fruity, with notes of red fruit and green pepper. Taste - Soft, pleasant."
