Winemaker Notes

Castello di Meleto Rosso Toscano is ruby red color with purple highlights. The wine shows intense aromas of fruit with hints of cherry and small berries. It has a medium structure and great balance; pleasantly fresh with soft tannins that are well-integrated.

Critical Acclaim

JS 90
James Suckling

This is very silky, with fine tannins and plenty of berry and plum character. Even some peaches here. Full and flavorful, with bright acidity.

Castello di Meleto, , Italy
Castello di Meleto
The structure of the Castle of Meleto, a 13th century majestic building, rises on a gentle hill, in the heart of the Chianti Classico area, at a small distance from the border between the old republics of Florence and Siena. Its very large Estate covers more than 1000 hectares (over 2400 acres), 180 of which are devoted to viticulture. The wines are mainly made with Sangiovese del Chianti grapes, which have grown for centuries in those vineyards. 180 hectares planted represent the fourth largest property in the region.

A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs from the San Pablo Bay to the Mendocino County border. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the “true” Sonoma Coast, marked by high rainfall, marine soils, cool temperatures, and saline ocean breezes, from which one can actually see the ocean—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, creating a diversity of wine styles. Contained within the appellation is the much smaller and more focused Fort Ross-Seaview AVA.

Sonoma Coast is highly regarded for elegant [Pinot Noir], Chardonnay, and, increasingly, cool-climate Syrah, with high acidity, moderate alcohol, firm tannin, and fruit that is rarely overripe. One of the most favorable sites within the region is the Petaluma Gap, where a break in the coastal mountain range allows Pacific winds and fog to funnel through and cool the vineyards.
