  • Castellare di Castellina Chianti Classico 2012

    Snoothrank:

    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 ... Read More

  • Castellare di Castellina Chianti Classico Riserva 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Serviceable 2008 after it opens up. Dark garnet hue with sienna rim, dried red stone fruit and cellar floor aromas; black cherry, red plum and dried red currant mix with tea and graphite across a seamless, modernly long finish. Read More

  • Castellare di Castellina Chianti Classico Riserva Vigna Il Poggiale 2009

    Snoothrank:

    The aroma is really superb; toffee and caramel notes with a little menthol and undertones of peach and red fruit. Rich mouth that is well balanced, with tomato and berries on the finish. Read More

  • Castellare di Castellina Coniale Toscana IGT 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Very earthy, with a bit of vanilla and cherry in there for good measure. Very smooth and sweet, with a lasting finish. Great tannins mean this could be sipped alone or with a heartier meal Read More

  • Castellare di Castellina Sangiovese Blend Colli Della Toscana Centrale IGT I Sodi di San Niccolò 1999

    Snoothrank:

    Cut red plums, smoke, hickory from the oak, a little flint, steel, apple core, lovely sweet violet note. Bright, fairly tense. I prefer the 97 to this. Tight and a bit oaky today. A bit chewy, lightly, full of bitter cherry fruit, classic austere, aggressive stuff. This is charged with fruit. Ready to beat your mouth into submission, but has fin... Read More
