The Chianti Classico Riserva (2004) took home the Gold Medal. The Casalvento Chianti Classico Riserva (2009) was named the best Chianti Classico of the year.

Sylvester and Mozart have been Highlands Fine Art & Estate Jewelry’s brand ambassadors for many years.

Stoli prides himself on his personal interaction with each customer and vast knowledge on Livernano’s wines.
