Castellare di Castellina Chianti Classico 2013


SKU 29974


A bright ruby red in color, this Chianti Classico shows well-integrated aromas of tart red cherries, tobacco, sunbaked earth, and a hint of cedar spice. On the palate, firm structure and refreshing acidity make it a very versatile food wine. Pair this wine with lasagna, ragù sauces, roasted rabbit, or braised veal shank.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Chianti Classico is a fabulous expression and a delightful wine to drink. It puts forward an informal and breezy style that hits all the right buttons. Dark cherry fruit and blackberry segue to spice and blanched almond. Silky tannins and fresh acidity cap off the experience. Production numbers for this vintage hit 100,000 bottles.

Wine SpectatorIron, graphite and cherry flavors are married to a firm structure here. The tannins are slightly dry, but this finishes with freshness and fine length. Drink now through 2020. 9,812 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThis pretty expression of Sangiovese and 5% Canaiolo opens with aromas of wild berry, plum, violet, wet earth and a whiff of Mediterranean herb. The lively, easy-drinking palate delivers sour cherry, black raspberry, black pepper and espresso alongside sleek tannins and bright acidity.
