Castellare Olionovo Extra Virgin Olive Oil 0.50 lt.
$29.00

Brilliant emerald green colour. Fruity aroma characterised by a medium intensity and hints of artichoke typical of Tuscan extra virgin olive oils, with pleasantly spicy and slightly bitter notes. In order to underline this characteristic, Castellare has patented the name Olio NoVo, expression literally meaning “new oil” and used by farmers to define fresh extra virgin olive oil that has just been pressed. Characterised by a deep green colour, just the right amount of spiciness, lively and pleasant on the palate.

Castellare di Castellina was born of the union of four estates (Castellare, Caselle, San Niccolò and Le Case) on the initiative of Paolo Panerai, with the aim of producing wine of the best possible quality. This was in the 1970s, when the so-called Renaissance of Italian wine had begun. A Renaissance to which Castellare made its own contribution with a combination of tradition and innovation.

Tradition in caring for its vineyards and terrains, distinguishing between fields and sodi (in which fields are the more easily worked terrains and sodi - "hard" soils - are the hardest but the best for growing vines), in its decision to continue producing wine according to the Tuscan method, and in its respect of the Chianti Classico denomination - only using indigenous Tuscan grape varieties to produce a wine that is internationally acknowledged as one of the greatest reds in the world.

Innovation was pursued first of all with the creation of the first experimental vineyard in the Chianti region together with the University of Milan - directed by Professor Attilio Scienza - and the University of Florence, implementing the first scientific selection of Sangiovese clones (here called Sangioveto). And then by introducing the use of the barrique, following the in-depth research and advice of Emile Peynaud, the most renowned oenologist in living memory, as well as by paying constant attention to each ongoing wine-making process in the incessant, ever-evolving work of producing quality wines.

This is a story that demonstrates how tradition, also in the installations, and innovation can draw the best out of the land, showing the younger generations how the hard work and lives of the Mezzadri - the people who once ran the estates as neither owners nor labourers - has been fundamental in shaping the extraordinary landscape of the Chianti. To the Mezzadri and their work Castellare has dedicated a sculpture by Matteo Spender, which stands in the centre of Castellina. The two photos by the great portrait photographer Giuseppe Pino illustrate this sacrifice, but also the joy that making wine brings with it.

Pairing Suggestions: Ideal with appetisers featuring beans, fresh vegetables and fish carpaccio, also recommended for seasoning raw red meat dishes.

Maturation: Olive varieties: Frantoio, Pendolino, Ascolane, Moraiolo e Leccino. Pressing: strictly cold-pressed, using a stone grinding process and cotton filtration.
