The Castello di Albola Estate is situated in Radda at the heart of the Chianti Classico DOCG appellation, where the legacy of grape cultivation dates back to the time of the Etruscans. The Acciaiuoli family commissioned the estate to plant its lofty vineyard in Chianti Classico in the 15th century as a symbol of their high status. Over the centuries, many noble Tuscan families have owned the property, and the estate has earned various accolades for its wines. In 1979, the Zonin family acquired Castello di Albola promising to uphold the estate's excellence for future generations. The wines produced in Castello di Albola have earned the iconic "Gallo Nero" symbol from the Chianti Classico Wine Consortium, which guarantees the highest standards in winemaking.

Produced only in the best vintages, Santa Caterina is a Chianti Classico Gran Selezione with an exceptionally deep and rich character, made unique by a timeless elegance. Intense ruby red flecked with burgundy. Intense and elegant aromas with floral notes of lily and a good concentration of ripe red fruit. Strong and full-bodied with sweet tannins. Long, persistent finish.
