Castellare di Castellina on Snooth

  • Castellare di Castellina Vin Santo del Chianti S. Niccolò 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Theres something a touch funky on the nose here with a very smoky and minerally profile that recalls bacon fat and ashes but theres also plenty of sweet fruit and even a hint of apricot glaze. In the mouth this is elegant and very refined with big, black cherry fruit thats tight and wound up. There are lovely, nuanced notes of sandalwood, dried... Read More

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

    Snoothrank:

    Aged in third passage barriqueThe 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 ...

  • Castellare di Castellina Sangiovese Blend Colli Della Toscana Centrale IGT I Sodi di San Niccolò 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Aged in third passage barriqueThis has a wonderful purity to the sweet, slightly candied notes of barely ripe crushed raspberries with hints of medicinal roots, flowers and bay leaves adding contrast. In the mouth this exhibits a light to medium bodied feel and is very fruit driven with a core of black currant and raspberry fruit that exhibits e... Read More

    We had this at a Tuscan Restaurant in Kumamoto, Japan. It paired with our steak and gnocchi perfectly. Dark cherry fruit wrapped up in coffee aromas and spicy tannins with a long finish. Read More

  • Poggio Il Castellare Brunello di Montalcino 2001

    Snoothrank:

    classic brunello. leather, cherries, and earthy qualities mesh together in a very structured and delicious effort. tannic, as it should be, but finally able to be enjoyed as it's maturing quite nicely. Read More

  • Poggio Il Castellare Rosso di Montalcino . Italy Tuscany 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Excellent value for the price. This wine has a complex appeal. On the nose I smell dark chocolate and some cherry. Upon first taste, there is a nice dark chocolate and dry cherry... letting the glass sit for an hour, the strength becomes black cherry... mmm. Read More

  • Castellare di Castellina Chianti Classico Riserva 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Oaky vanilla and cola with green vegetables and a bit of wet fur on the nose. Packed with flavor of raw beef, green pepper, orange rind and blackberries. A nice Chianti that I would happily try again. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Outhouse, with very dark expressive fruits, stylish flavors, bright and warm with nice fresh midpalate and long perfumed finish. Read More

    Wine review by vigna uva vino


  • A follow up to the first tasting though with more of an Italian slant this time. I have to say that several of the Californian examples continue to really impress me. Some great wine is being made out there but they will never replace the classic Chianti Classico Riservas that Tuscany can offer. Still it's worth taking a look westward!Flight 1 -... Read More
