  • Castellare di Castellina Chianti Classico 2012

    Snoothrank:

    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.

  • Castellare di Castellina Chianti Classico Riserva 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Serviceable 2008 after it opens up. Dark garnet hue with sienna rim, dried red stone fruit and cellar floor aromas; black cherry, red plum and dried red currant mix with tea and graphite across a seamless, modernly long finish. Read More

  • Castellare di Castellina Chianti Classico Riserva Vigna Il Poggiale 2009

    Snoothrank:

    The aroma is really superb; toffee and caramel notes with a little menthol and undertones of peach and red fruit. Rich mouth that is well balanced, with tomato and berries on the finish. Read More
