Castellare di Castellina Sangiovese Sangiovese Castellare di Castellina Italy Tuscany Tuscany IGT 2005

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.

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
