This is the top wine of La Castellina: aged 30 months for richness and depth. 92/100 James Suckling

La Castellina winery is located in a historic castle that once belonged to the formidable Scuarcialupi family. The medieval grand-masters of Chianti, they were allies and rivals of the powerful House of Medici. This wine falls within the “Gran Selezione” standard, which was introduced in 2010 to mark the very best Chianti Classico wines. It was matured for 24 months in small oak barrels, large oak tonneaux (500 litres) and small barriques (225 litres), developing complex and integrated aromas with soft tannins. It’s certainly one of the best wines of the land. In 2019, James Suckling wrote that it will be “better in 2020, but (is) already impressive.”

Tasting notes: Dry, with an intense ruby colour. Rich and deep flavours of dried figs and cranberry, blueberry, spices and cinnamon. Full bodied, with soft, rounded tannins.

Awards: James Suckling 92 points
