Fresh and powerful Chianti Classico from high-altitude vineyards in Castellina. Flavours of raspberry, fresh cherry and cinnamon

With its rich taste of fresh raspberry and cherry, this wine is the quintessential Chianti Classico. It has lots of flavour, freshness and just the right level of “oakiness”. For me, it’s almost too good – I am even guilty of sometimes enjoying it more than the more expensive Riserva!

La Castellina “Squarcialupi” is produced by Dr Tommaso Bojola in the small town of Castellina, in the very heart of the Chianti Classico zone. The cellar is hidden in the historic Squarcialupi castle, right in the centre of Castellina – hence the name of the wine. In the 15th Century, the Squarcialupi family were allies of the powerful Medici of Florence in their never-ending feud with Siena. It’s mind-blowing to think that such delicious wine is now made inside the storied walls of their historic castle.

This Chianti Classico has received spectacular recognition from the renowned wine critic James Suckling, and was also included in the “5 Star Wines” guide by Vinitaly scoring 93 points.

Tasting notes

In the glass, this Chianti Classico has a bright ruby colour. It offers the purest aromas of Sangiovese – fresh raspberry and red cherry supported by notes of balsamic vinegar, mint, cinnamon and leather.

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