With estates in Maremma (Magliano), Sicily (Ispica), and Chianti Classico- Rocca di Castagnoli is part of the larger Tenute Cali family of wineries. Purchased in 1981, and first belonging to the Tempi family, the estate is one of the most ancient in the Chianti Classico region, dating back to the 18th century. The winery itself has also been considered somewhat of an economic driving force for the village it surrounds, with a visit from Grand Duke Pietro Leopoldo in 1773, who praised the estates excellent land management, maintenance, and innovation. Spanning some 850 ha with elevation ranging as high as 860m to 380m above sea level, 92 ha are dedicated to vines with Sangiovese being the primary grape cultivated.

Tasting Notes

Intense stone fruit and citrus on the nose, wonderful minerality and acidity, subtle balanced oak (vanilla and baking spice) adds a layer of aromatic and flavour complexity without detracting from the primary fruit.  The wine coats the palate with a round texture and long flavourful finish.  


Chardonnay grapes grown on a soil rich in Albarese and limestone at an elevation on 420 m above sea level.  The grapes were harvested in the second half of September, about 1kg of grapes per vine.   Cold pressing for 48 hours, followed by soft pressing.  50% of the juice was fermented in stainless steel while the other half in first and second passage barriques for about 10 days.  Malolactic fermentation partly in wood and stainless steel before ageing 10 months in bottle.
