Castellare di Castellina was established in 1968 after the consolidation of 5 different estates in the Siena region, brought together by Paolo Panerai, the Italian press magnate.
Panerai envisioned a typical Tuscan setting and narrowed the varietal pool to specimens thought to be native of the area, and as of today the estate is still engaged in a research program with the University of Florence, in a bid to preserve and strengthen the Tuscan viticultural heritage. Within the Chianti Classico Denominazione, Castellare di Castellina is a blend of Sangioveto and Canaiolo, as tradition would want it, with Sangioveto thought to be the original clone of Tuscan Sangiovese.
An excellent example of Chianti Classico produced from a blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Canaiolo. Deep dark red near opaque colour with dark crimson red hue. Lifted dark cherry scents are intermixed with some leather, earth and spice. Light to medium weight and very savoury the palate delivers an elegantly textured flavour profile of dark cherry, leather, earth and spice. Dry finish with very fine grained well integrated tannins. Aftertaste of dark cherry, leather and spice.
