The wines of Castello di Meleto are characterized by their authentic expression of the Chianti Classico area. Elegant and structured, they combine freshness, imparted by the altitudes and the thermal excursions of the hills of Gaiole in Chianti, and minerality, imparted by rocky soils. All vineyards are subject to low yields in order to guarantee consistent and constant quality in all wines.
In its almost one thousand years of history, the production of wine has always accompanied Castello di Meleto and today the aim is to make the best expression of the "talent" of this place. Our Sangiovese expresses itself differently depending on the vineyard but our style is always recognizable for the elegance and finesse of the scents.
Castello di Meleto presents the Cru of each single vineyard and concretely demonstrates the work started in the last years on the quality of wines and on the image, with the goal of expressing at best the vocation of the territory and to valorize the millenarian history which makes them unique.
One early autumn day a merchant came upon the town of Gaiole in Chianti. Tired, hungry and unhappy, he was met by a group of winemakers who welcomed him with delight and offered him grapes from the local land. Thanks to those very grapes from our vineyards, the merchant was filled with a newfound joy. The following day the merchant left Gaiole in Chianti profusely thanking the gleeful village for having restored to him his happiness.
The Borgaio Line offers very pleasant and immediate wines, designed for daily consumption.
We live in an extraordinary place, where nature is the main actor. We carefully guard this heritage, protecting and enhancing different varieties of grapes.
