Castellare di Castellina Chianti Classico Riserva Sangiovese Cannaiolo Tuscany Chianti Classico 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Aged in third passage barrique The nose here exhibits bright cherry fruit with background notes of moss and worn wood with mineral and licorice highlights. In the mouth the first thing one notices are the super fine, polished tannins that give this an elegant and balanced feel. The red currant fruit is buoyed by the bright acids and has a lovely hint of astringency that keeps everything fresh and dynamic in the mouth. The fruit gains more wild cherry accents with air and reveals big mineral and pressed flower notes that lead to a rich, earthy finish. A complete and suave Chianti. 92pts
