The origin of Vino Nobile goes back to the 17th century, when it was defined «The King of Tuscan Wines» (Francesco Redi, Bacco in Toscana). Doubtlessly drunk and appreciated by aristocrats and gentlemen (hence its name) this wine has transcended its fame to modern times. In the last 15 years (it was given the D.O.C.G. in 1980), Castellani took part to the renewal of the excellence of this wine, thanks to increased financial energies and up-dated philosophy. The improved vineyard management and modernization in the cellars have elevated the quality level of our Vino Nobile. Today it is considered one of the most prestigious red Italian wines.
