It was such a pleasure hosting the leadership of Castello di Volpaia for a special tasting in the store last season. Now, it seems others will be catching onto "Chianti's Hidden Treasure." Chianti's Hidden Treasure Mitch Frank, Wine Spectator October 31, 2015 "Volpaia is one of those seductive Tuscan places that tempts people into quitting their jobs and uprooting their lives. The hilltop town sits nearly 2,000 feet above sea level, looking over Chianti Classico, reachable only by a narrow road that climbs through sunbathed vines, olive trees and cypresses. A relic of the 12th century, the old village is home to fewer than 60 people, living behind walls that Siena's medieval soldiers found intimidating and modern visitors find charming. On a sunny but cool morning, just a few tourists are walking on the old stone streets, soaking in the fresh air and historic charm, never suspecting that one of Tuscany's best wines is coursing through steel pipes beneath their feet. Volpaia's chief commercial enterprise is Castello di Volpaia, a winery that produces outstanding Chiantis and super Tuscans. Its Chianti Classico Riserva 2010, 93 points and retailing for about $30, earned a spot in Wine Spectator's Top 100 last year. (Here's a chart of selected recent releases.)"
