Product Description

Volpaia is again part of the TOP 100 of Wine Spectator! Each Volpaia Vineyard is harvested and produced separately, the Chianti Classico Riserva is made from a blend of the wines coming from the best vineyards of Volpaia and aged for 24 months in 80% solvenian and french oak casks and 20% new french oak barriques. History: The Volpaia Chianti Classico Riserva label features the della Volpaia family coat of arms. The family took its name from the village of Volpaia itself. Lorenzo della Volpaia (1446-1512), an architect, goldsmith, mathematician and clockmaker, founded a Florentine dynasty of clockmakers and scientific-instrument makers that included his sons Camillo, Benvenuto and Eufrosino, and nephew Girolamo. As clockmaker, Lorenzo gained fame and honor with the construction of the Orologio dei Pianeti (Planetary Clock). Lorenzo also built the clock at the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence. He was a friend of Leonardo da Vinci and took part in the discussions on the placement of Michelangelo’s David. The della Volpaia family instruments are on display at the Science Museums in Florence andGreenwich (United Kingdom), the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence and the Adler Planetariumin Chicago.
