Located north of the village of Greve in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, the Nozzole estate covers a striking, rugged, mountainous area of about 1,000 acres, a third of which is vines and olive groves. Select parcels in the Tenuta di Nozzole estate are dedicated to Villa Nozzole Chianti Classico. Crafted with a fruit-forward, New World character, Villa Nozzole Chianti is ready to drink upon release. Extended aging in large oak casks provides additional roundness and depth.
