A traditional Chianti - none of the 'new' invaders of Cabernet or Merlot in this blend. Pure and traditional. Stunning!
Aromas and flavours of cherries, plums, spices, tobacco and liquorice - everything a Chianti should be.
Grapes: Sangiovese, Canaiolo
Castellare di Castellina does not follow fashion. While many Chianti wineries have lost touch with their Tuscan roots and experimented with blending French varieties and local grapes over the past few decades, the wine made at Castellare keeps a strong commitment to the traditional Tuscan variety of Sangioveto, the original local name for Sangiovese.
