Winemaker Notes

Castiglioni Chianti is a deep ruby red with purplish highlights. Notes of small red-berry fruits like mulberry and currant insinuate themselves on the nose, while the ripe plum is perfectly in tune with fragrant violet and geranium. The palate is smooth, warm and elegantly balanced. A long, harmonious finish, good persistency, with a lightly spicy aftertaste.

Blend: 90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot

Fresh and fruity, with raspberries and hints of flowers. Medium-to-full body, with delicate tannins. Just a straight up Chianti that satisfies. Outstanding.
