  • Podere Castellinuzza Chianti Classico 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Earthy and brooding on the nose, this brings muted red fruit but mostly mineral earth. A touch medicinal in the mouth with fruit notes of mixed berry and cherry cough drops with a punchy character and a finish of gripping tannins and earthiness. Read More

  • Castelvecchi Capotondo Chianti Classico 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Moist savory earth and mineral rich notes alongside tight red currant and cherry aromas. This overdelivers on fruit at first, with ripe cherry and strawberry preserves curiously tightening towards the mid palate into a blend of tart cranberry and sour cherry with a hint of medicine on the finish.

  • Castello Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Rich mineral complexity and barnyard aromas are fully in control on the nose - barely any fruit making its way through. On the palate this is juicy, firm and vibrant with zesty sour cherry, cranberry and strawberry fruit, a hint of herbal licorice and medicine notes and a pleasant earth on the finish. 91 pts Read More
