About the Wine Maker

The Rodano Fattoria owned by the Pozzesi family, is only reachable by a unsealed road off the Via Chiantigiana, was for centuries, a staging post for pilgrims travelling south to Rome. It sits atop a high hill and surveys a classically Tuscan landscape of rolling vine-striped hills and valleys. Located in Castellina in the heart of the Chianti Classico district, the estate dates back as a wine-producing property to the sixteenth century. The Pozzesi’s understand and developed a dedicated following for their Chianti which reflects a sense of place and tradition and have made their ‘Classico’ from 90% Sangiovese and 5?ch of Colorino and Canaiolo, grown in southwest-facing vineyards in the Castellina sub zone. Oak aging is done in large Slovenian botti di rovere which impart little more than a seasoning, allowing the purity of the fruit and balanced structure to shine on their own merits. These days it is son Enrico Pozzesi who handles the management and winemaking. One of the reasons for the fantastic quality here is that the domaine’s former winemaker was Guilio Gambelli, who passed away in 2012. Gambelli was one of the most legendary winemakers in Chianti, consulting for such estates as Montevertine and Gianfranco Soldera. Enrico worked at his side for many years and Rodano is one of the best-kept secrets in all of Tuscany...
