Flavours of raspberry and chocolate: an excellent vintage by La Castellina. 93/100 James Suckling

“Riserva” Chianti Classicos, such as this, are only produced in the best years. The grapes for this masterpiece by La Castellina were harvested by hand. The resulting wine was matured in large Slavonian oak barrels for 12 months, and for another 6 months after that – some in small, 225-litre oak barriques and the rest in large 500-litre tonneaux – to soften the tannins. Aromas of red fruits from Sangiovese and black fruits from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are well integrated through this extended ageing process.

Tasting notes: Dry, with a deep ruby colour. Pronounced, well integrated aromas of red plum, raspberry, blackberry, chocolate and cinnamon. Bold and full-bodied, with high acidity and velvety tannins.
