2017 Castagna La Chiave
A world class Sangiovese that’s rich, deep and savoury.
Biodynamic certified estate grown Sangiovese. Deep black dark red colour with a dark red hue. Emanating from the glass are spicy red currant and dark cherry scents which are complimented by earth, dried herb and leathery tobacco like notes. Rich and intensely concentrated with plenty of volume in the mouth, red to black currant, subtle liquorice and dark cherry fruits engulf the palate. Earthy tobacco, dried herb and spicy cedar characters ensue. Excellent drive with fresh acidity and a sturdy yet well integrated tannin structure lending a subtle chewy feel to the long expressive aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
