Villa Cafaggio covers approximately 60 hectares, of which 30 are cultivated as specialised vineyards and about 10 as olive groves. The remaining area is woodland. Situated in the hamlet of Greve in Chianti, in Panzano, the estate is nestled in the ‘Conca d’Oro’ (Golden basin), an area recognised as the finest zone for producing Chianti Classico. 

To make this wine, the grapes are destemmed and delicately crushed so as to not damage the rich and highly coloured skins. Selected yeasts are added to the must to activate fermentation whilst the wine remains in contact with the skins for 3 weeks. After the initial fermentation, the Cortaccio is transferred to an area used exclusively for malolactic fermentation, which takes place entirely in French oak barriques, leading to the creation of a beautifully structured and balanced wine.

Tasting Notes

The Villa Cafaggio Cortaccio is a wine of extraordinary quality with a garnet colour, an intense aroma reminiscent of blackcurrants and a perfectly blended roasted character. The palate is concentrated, with extremely well balanced tannins and the finish is very long.

Pronounced aromas of cassis, tar and coffee. The palate is incredibly fat and juicy, with concentrated cassis fruit, huge body, gloriously silky tannins.
