Castello di Verrazzano Chianti Classico Riserva 1985

Member Review by Moschini:

Chianti Classico riserva 1985 Cinquecentenario di Verrazzano, likely the best 25 year old red I ever drank. I was afraid it had gone bad... what an amazing event it was to uncork it, decant it, let it sit for 2 hours and then pour it into a tall voluminous glass. The bocquet was out of this world and the taste!!! Extremely diasappointing to see no more merchants have this in stock. Luckily I have one more bottle left:-)

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
