The Full Review

For Chianti geeks the specific meso-climates of communes in the Classico region is a big deal. Examples from the Castellina tend to be rich, yet soft and tangy, with tannins on the razor’s edge of being center stage but never quite getting there, resulting in beautiful balance. This wine may be a little hard to find but if you can locate it please pick it up. It is an exquisite representation of the best of Sangiovese. Tangy and ruby hued with ripe cherry fruit, earth and a tinge of oregano. The wine sees oak but it’s not in your face and plays second fiddle to the more classic aromas. This wine is the whole package. The aromas wisp through your head as the slight grip of tannin keeps you engaged, readying you for another sip. Food or no food, this wine is excellent.
