Riserva -- Offers impressive aromas of blackberry and light toasty oak, with just a hint of sweet tobacco. There’s lots of coconut and oak character on the palate, but this is concentrated and balanced. An enticing young Chianti Classico. -- Fattoria Casaloste is a new darling of Chianti Classico. Located near more famous neighbors, this small upstart has quickly risen to become one of the Gran Selezione elite. The estate was founded in the early 1990s by Giovanni BaVsta d’Orsi, an agronomist and professor of enology at Naples University, and his wife Emilia. The d'Orsis had the foresight and luck of finding an unplanted site in the "Conca d’Oro" - literally the "golden shell" of Panzano in the heart of Chianti Classico - also home to famous producers including Fontodi, La Massa, Rampolla, Vecchie Terre and Villa Cafaggio. Once the site was selected, Giovanni committed himself to producing the purest vineyard expression he could, by farming organically - long before it was popular to do so. He also introduced Merlot to the site (about 15% of planting), which thrives on the estate. The motto of the winery, "essere piccoli per fare grandi vini" ("be small to make great wines"), perfectly expresses their winemaking philosophy and their quick ascent in the wine world.
