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

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

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

Classic Chianti nose of earth, spice, and rich plum. Great structure and balance on the palate with flavors of black cherry and plum with pleasing hints of lightly toasted oak on the finish. Very easy to drink! Cory Gowan. A Sangiovese wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2005 Castellare Chianti Classico 750ml
