Below the interview with Piergiorgio Castellani, for the company Castellani SPA, for space in Milan Expo c/o Consorzio Vino Chianti.
A story into the wine. Over a hundred years connects Castellani family and Tuscan wine. A deep bond of passion for the land and the desire to do business by transforming the knowledge of the territory and of viticulture in an everyday practical know-how.
«With the first grape harvests, I realized that the wine is a mystery and a gift that requires the deep sense of Nature in all its forms and manifestations. Wine is something more than just a drink, it is a nourishment; it is the product of a culture and when it reaches its highest expression is able to condense, in a vegetable juice, the spirit of a place, a person, sometimes of an entire family»
This is the synthesis of the thought that has moved, from the beginning, the work of Piergiorgio Castellani.
"For EXPO Milano we chose a classic, probably the most famous and important classic Italian wine: Chianti. Of this wine we selected our Riserva that is aged in traditional casks to offer a version with more complexity and power than the basic Chianti.
Visitors will seize its uniqueness: only in Tuscany you can get this wine from grapes mainly Sangiovese, with its unique scent, its unique taste... the story of Castellani family is firmly related to Tuscany and to the Chianti.
Our Chianti DOCG Riserva is an excellent pairing to all the best Mediterranean dishes, simple cuisine but full of flavor. Chianti is a wine for every meal that enhances even the everyday dishes like pizza and pasta.
The company Castellani gave birth to a real corporate culture around the concept of sustainability. It is not enough to talk about it, but you need to study, learn and understand what stands for a word and a concept extremely complex and evolving like sustainability.
EXPO is indeed a great opportunity to learn and fully understand which one is the most sustainable way for the future.»
