Fattoria di Rodáno is located in the heart of the Chianti Classico in the famed region of Castellina in Chianti. It is an outstanding source of classically styled Sangiovese aged in old Slavonian botti barrels.
The original farm dates to the Middle Ages and sits on the historic “Via Franchigena” used by pilgrims to travel from northern Europe to Rome. It became a wine-producing property in the sixteenth century. The winery has been in the Pozzesi family for three generations, since 1958. Vittorio Pozzesi, who owned the winery until his passing in 2012, was the President of the Chianti Classico Consortium. His son, Enrico is now the winemaker and managing partner of the winery.
The 2015 Bottesola is the product of an outstanding vintage and only 1 barrel was produced. This is old school Chianti done right.
