Castellare Chianti Classico Reserva Italy Tuscany Chianti Classico 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Castellare Chianit Classico is a traditional Tuscan classic made from 95% Sangioveto and 5% Canaiolo harvested from estate vineyards at 1200 feet above sea level in the heart of Chianti Classico. This Chianti is brilliant ruby red with an ample bouquet of violets iris and vanilla followed by deep layers of fruit on the palate. Dry and full bodied with hints of almond and slight notes of tobacco. This is a concentrated consistently round wine with a velvety feel and a lingering finish. The Castellare property has become a virtual refuge for wildlife including many of the birds pictured on the labels. With each vintage the Castellare labels show a different bird symbolizing the estate's commitment to environmentally sound cultivation.

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

This Chianti is brilliant ruby red with an ample bouquet of violets, iris and vanilla followed by thick layers of fruit on the palate. Dry and full bodied with hints of almond and slight notes of tobacco. This is a concentrated, consistently round wine with a velvety feel and a lingering finish. Recommended with roast beef, tripe, pecorino toscano cheese and hearty dishes. Wine Buyer Best Buy
