Castellina in Chianti, Siena
The Podere Monastero estate is situated in Castellina in Chianti, in the heart of Tuscany, about 500 metres above sea level. It was established in 2000 by its owner, oenologist Alessandro Cellai, with the sole aim of making two great wines - La Pineta and Campanaio. The vineyards occupy an area of 3 hectares, 1.5 of which used for the cultivation of Pinot Nero (La Pineta), while the remaining 1.5 are cultivated with Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) and Merlot (50%) (Campanaio). The choice of land combined with extensive research and meticulous attention to detail, in the vineyard and in the cellar, has produced two great wines of considerable personality. These wines fully enhance the particular characteristics of the grape varieties of origin, without disguising the positive aspects of the local “terroir”.
