PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Located in the town of Gaioli in the southern part of Chianti Classico, this historic, medieval estate has been owned by the Martini di Cigala family since 1914. Today the property encompasses 160 hectares, of which 30.5 are planted to vines. The estate benefits from a unique microclimate marked by a dramatic fluctuation between day and night temperatures, which allows the Sangiovese grape to reach peak maturity while maintaining proper acidity.


The estate is currently managed by the current generation Elisabetta, Francesco, and Luca, with the help of enologist Attilio Pagli and agronomist Ruggero Mazzilli. Under the direction of this team, San Giusto A Rentennano is widely recognized as among the top "Grand Cru" estates of Chianti Classico. The 2016 vintage (long sold out well over a year ago) was rated #3 on the Wine Spectator "Top-100" list for 2019. The 2018 lives up to its predecessor. Check out the press!

93 points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate:
“The 2018 Chianti Classico is a textbook expression from the appellation. This Sangiovese-based wine shows latitude and depth with elegant aromas of wild berry, forest floor, dried blueberry, honey, lavender and rosemary essence. There are hints of chalk or crushed limestone that recall the unique soils of the Gaiole in Chianti growing region. The tannins are elegantly integrated, and the wine offers enough natural freshness to pair with a hearty pappardelle al sugo di cinghiale.” (8/31/20)
