The Story

The prestigious “Contessa di Radda” line is the pride of Geografico, boasting an ancient and glorious tradition. Its name celebrates the illustrious Willa of Tuscany and the millenary history of Chianti Classico hills. This iconic wine is produced with the best selections of the Radda and Gaiole vineyards, the homeland of Chianti Classico. Its refined character makes it the pearl of the Geografico.


All grapes are manually harvested upon reaching perfect phenolic maturation. The Sangiovese (90%), Cabernet Sauvignon (5%) and Colorino (5%) are all vinified separately. The fermenting juice undergoes a prolonged temperature-controlled maceration in stainless steel tanks, with frequent pump overs to ensure an intense color extraction and structure. Once the fermentation is over the wine is racked into the barrel cellar. The wine ages for 18 months in 50% barriques and 50% large wooden vats. A further 3 months of bottle ageing is required before release.

Tasting Notes

This pours a ruby red colour with garnet notes. Intensely aromatic with notes of ripe fruit, spices, and persistent delicate floral notes. On the palate it is pleasantly tannic, harmonious, and velvety.
