Looking to expand beyond the heavily saturated Chianti Classico area, Castellare turned to the natural outlet of Maremma. What started as a small expansion plan took on a new dimension, as a unique joint venture between Castellare and Domaines Barons de Rothschild-Lafite, the first partnership of its kind.The project couples CastellareÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s experience in the growing and vinification of Sangioveto with LafiteÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s experience in classic French varietals. Extensive research led to a site selection in the hills formed by the two sides of the old Aurelia in Monteregio di Massa Marittima. The first vineyards were planted on 17 acres in 2000; however, today, this successful project oversees almost 200 acres of vineyards in an unrivalled microclimate for native varietals.
