Chianti Classico Castell’in Villa DOCG 2016

R375.00

Region: Castelnuovo Berardenga, (SI) Tuscany

” It is a complex and serious blend of seperate, choice vineyards of 100% Sangiovese grapes.  The wine is aged in traditional Chianti Classico large oak casks for about twelve months. This outstanding, soulful wine captures the fruit of the Sangiovese grapes and the earthy, spicy and slightly wild traces of the earth in a beautiful blend. It is an unusually concentrated Chianti Classico, that will improve and become more complex for another twenty years. Do decant it for four hours or more, before drinking at this young stage. It develops beautifully, and when we tasted it a day after opening, the aroma just swelled with dark red roses and a hint of leather and liquorice, inviting us to savour it for hours. The flavour carries a deep, juicy core of wild brambleberry fruit, with fresh acidity and that chalky Sangiovese dryness at the end”.  Caroline 

Food pairing: A great match with T-bone steak grilled over the coals, served with mushroom sauce.
