Castello di Meleto Vigna Casi Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2015 Review

Like any wine a single vineyard selection is only as special as the land under vine and the skill of the humans involved. Just because it says single vineyard doesn’t mean it’s awesome. This one is an example of awesome. It sets itself apart from the classic structure and tannin focus of Gaiole by being ripe, clean and earthy with bright cherry tones along with floral notes and a thin slice of earth. The palate takes ripe to the next level as the grippy tannins woven tightly around the vibrant acidity, giving a quenching sensation to the mouthfeel.  It calls for grilled or roasted pork or any lean meat.
