  • Sangiovese
  • Chianti Classco
  • Tuscany
  • Italy
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"This is a delicious wine with a very clean entry to the palate. The wine makes its mark thanks to shapely aromas of dark fruit, dried cherry and plum. The quality of the fruit is evident in the classic 2013 vintage. Clean acidity and bright berry flavors move towards the palate where they are both refreshing and invigorating. This is a great wine to pair with grilled meat or flatbread with smoked bacon or sausage."

"Bright red. The nose of red fruits, dried rose, orange peel, minerals and underbrush has a grapey nuance. Then saline and soil-driven, displaying a firming edge of acidity to the floral red cherry flavors. A lovely wine that neatly combines a rustic chewiness and a plush ripe cherry mouthfeel; very Nerello Mascalese. Finishes with sneaky length."

"This is a gorgeous, radiant wine. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate, wild flowers and spices all meld together in a sensual Barolo endowed with striking presence and intensity. This Castiglione is especially lifted and expressive, with compelling purity and nuance. With time in the glass, the wine freshens up considerably, so aeration is a good idea for readers who want to open this early. This is an attractive, seriously delicious Barolo from Vietti."

"This is a fascinating wine that really stands apart from its peers. I can't say that everyone will love it, but you can't deny the originality and sheer character of this wine. There is an exotic element to the bouquet that comes off as clove, licorice and barbecue smoke. This is a very aromatic rendition of Nebbiolo. This year those opulent spice tones are more graceful and feminine."
