This is another of Dave's finds. Corbinelli is under-represented in the US and makes some great wines that we can get for great prices.
At the beginning of the 800s the Corbinelli cousins established the House and the Cellar on their land and started to produce wine. L’Azienda Agricolo Corbinelli was founded. Over the years the property and land has grown to it’s present size of 20 hectares of which a small plot of half a hectare planted with olive groves. The vineyards can be found in the Community of Certaldo and Montespertoli, in a typical area for Chianti production in lovely rolling hills approximately between 200 and 300 meters high.
The passion for wine growing has passed down through the generations and is now under the ownership of Claudio Corbinelli, who several years ago, took over the already successful business from his father. He has followed his father’s intuition from the start and feels privileged to have reduced the return per hectare in favor of producing high quality wines.
