Castellare di Castellina 2015 Chianti Riserva

Sangiovese (aka Sangioveto) 95% / Canaiolo 5%. Only native vines, without Cabernet or Merlot, to maintain the most typical formula of the most famous Italian wine, without following the trend that see the use of wines from the South to modify the beautiful ruby red typical of the Sangioveto with red-black hues. A wine which with its typical characteristics strives to achieve maximum elegance. Tasting notes: Typical ruby red colour, which has a tendency to become garnet red as the wine ages. The nose has an intense aroma of violets and an elegance that is enhanced over time. On the palate the wine displays relatively dry and harmonious notes, while also being slightly tannic, with a flavour that becomes increasingly velvety over time. Ideal with red and white meat, as well as pairing well with poultry, hare and various cheeses.
