PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEW:
Casale dello Sparviero is a family-owned estate established by Olindo Andrighetti, a Venetian entrepreneur, in the early 1970s. A farm located in Campoperi, near Siena, it was surrounded by vineyards, olive trees, and forests. Sensing great potential for wine production, Olindo completely renovated the farm and turned it into a wine estate in 1972. In 1994 Ada Andrighetti, Olindo's daughter took control of the company, acquired the neighboring Casale estate, and transformed it into a new operational and production center, officially giving life to Casale dello Sparviero. Ada's son Arrigo Barion currently manages the estate, which has 88 hectares of vineyards, alongside his mother and spearheaded the effort to become certified organic in 2019.


The estate was named after a sparviero, or sparrow hawk, as a symbol of strength and elegance. This is also a fitting name for today's stunning wine, which deftly straddles the line between opulence and grace. Full-bodied and crafted from 100% Sangiovese, it abounds with layers of ripe raspberries, blackberry jam, and black cherries entwined with notes of tobacco, baking spices, and black pepper. 

90 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"With the pretty image of a sparrow hawk on the front label, the Casale dello Sparviero 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva shows dark fruit, spice, earth, and an open or accessible approach that fits squarely in line with the characteristics of Castellina in Chianti, the sub-region that I associate with bright sunshine and open landscapes. There is much beauty for the sparrow hawk to observe from its soaring heights. This wine offers lots of dark fruit that is intermingled with savory rosemary. Grill up a sirloin for this one".
