Castellare di Castellina Chianti Classico Riserva
A traditional Chianti Reserva -15 months in oak barrels gives this a stunning complexity and spicy-rich finish.
This wine has exotic dark fruit flavours, with hints of mint and liquorice. Layers of fruit build to the rich, creamy finish.
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.
