Villa Cafaggio is located in the commune of Greve lies in the very heart of the Chianti Classico region. It can trace its history back nearly 700 years and today is one of the most modern and dynamic producers in the region. Under the direction of Stefano Farkas, the wines are vinified in a state-of-the-art winery and then matured in a mixture of new French barriques and traditional large Slovenian casks.
The two Chianti Classicos are benchmark examples of new wave Chiantis with the Solatio Basilica Riserva being produced from 60-year-old vines and only produced in the very best years. Cortaccio (90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Sangiovese) and San Martino (100% Sangiovese) are both aged in French barriques for 18 months and are concentrated wines that, while very appealing in youth, really show their best with 5 years cellaring.
