Top Chianti Classico tasted 3/2014

8. Castellare di Castellina Chianti Classico (2012)

« Prev 8 of 8
Previously available for $22.99
95% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo Mineral and herb greet the nose followed by a little huckleberry over wild blackberry fruit but the dusty and mineral notes return to dominate the nose in a nuanced and attractive way Fairly big fruit in the mouth is a little chewy, a little short, tight and raw but with lovely purity of fruit and fine typicity. This definitely needs some time in the bottle but has everything in place to grow into a fine example of Chianti Classico that really wears its terroir on its sleeve. 87pts
