Brand Castello di Meleto
Alcohol/vol 13.5%
Intense ruby ​​red, notes of cherry, typical of the vine, with hints of flowers and vanilla. Entry into the velvety mouth that becomes enveloping, with thick and round tannins, pleasantly alcoholic. Good structure and excellent balance with a long and wide finish.
Wine Spectator

Elegant and tense, evoking rose, cherry, strawberry and spice flavors, with refined tannins holding court as this winds down on the finish. Shows fine harmony, but needs a few years to really hit its stride. Best from 2019 through 2027. 10,000 cases made.

Aromas of red-skinned berry, tobacco and blue flower take center stage. The easygoing palate shows juicy Marasca cherry, cinnamon and a touch of star anise alongside lithe tannins.

The 2015 Chianti Classico shows overtly sweet fruit flavors at the first sip. The bouquet is fragrant and bright with ripe cherry, blueberry and more primary notes to follow. The wine is simple and delineated with a nice progression of Sangiovese flavors to keep your attention. Pair this Chianti Classico with spicy onion and sausage pizza. Some 120,000 bottles were made.
