Named after the sparrowhawk – a bird of strength and elegance – that often graces the skies, Casale dello Sparviero is a beautiful Tuscan estate. It has an 800-year-old history, with its oldest vineyard dedicated to grapes since 1169. Its current owners bought the farm in the Chianti heartland in the 1970s. A businessman from the Veneto, Olindo Andrighetti could sense the huge potential of what he'd taken on and set about restoring its vineyards, olive groves, woodland and buildings. In 1994, his daughter Ada took the helm and is helped today by her son, Arrigo. Two of Italy's finest consultants, Franco and Matteo Bernabei, lead the winemaking, ageing this Classico 12 months in large oak barrels, the rest in bottle. Open early and decant.
