Castello di Verrazzano Chianti Classico 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby red colour with purplish reflexes, intense scent, rich in flavours of red mature fruits such as cherry and blackberry blended with floral notes. The taste is harmonic and with a great balance, good structure, sapid, with oak striations, a fine and sweet tannic component and pleasant hints of red fruits.

The Castle of Verrazzano is located on a hilltop in the Chianti Classico area, the first grape growing and wine producing area in the world to be determined by an official proclamation, made by the grand Duke Cosimo III de' Medici in 1716. Its high position, over the Greve valley, was once of strategic-military importance; today it is possible to easily overlook the vineyards which fan out across the slopes to the edges of the wood further down the valley. The castle was an etruscan then a roman settlement before becoming the property of the Verrazzano family in the VIIth century. Read less

Smoky earth and bramble fruit notes on the nose. Focused fruit notes of cranberry and cherry on the palate with a tart and earthy finish of dark chocolate and burnt toast.

95% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo Dark on the nose and a bit sweet smelling with a beautiful melange of frutti del bosco, woodland spices, and mineral aromas. A bit chunky in the mouth and rich with ripe cherry fruit, this lacks a bit of structure, turning soft on the palate which is a bit roasty and fudgy. that roasted fruit does show fine persistence on the long finish, but i would like to see more energy and freshness. 85pts
