The quintessential, beautiful Chianti Classico: raspberry, fresh cherry and cinnamon. 92/100

This wine is the quintessential taste of Chianti Classico, and was awarded a stellar 92 points from wine expert James Suckling. La Castellina winery is hidden in the cellars of a historic castle, which belonged to the Squarcialupi family during the 15th Century. Not only were this family big political players in the wars between Siena and Florence, they also created the Squarcialupi Codex – a unique surviving manuscript of Renaissance music.

Tasting notes: Tasting notes: Dry, with a bright ruby colour. Prominent aromas of fresh raspberry and cherry, characteristic to Sangiovese, and aromatic herbs. Medium body, high acidity and fine tannins, with a subtle hint of cloves and cinnamon: from 12 months ageing in large barrels of Slavonian oak.

Awards: James Suckling 92 points

    Was good especially with sharp cheese and red meats but really rich and filling.
