Founded in 1974 by Giuseppe Castiglioni, and now managed and owned by Sebastiano Cossia Castiglionii. Blend of sangiovese, merlot and cabernet, from organic grapes, lovely nose of fruit, floral and spice. On the palate cherry and plum flavors with earthy herb notes, touch of spicy cacao. Fine tannins, good balance, medium finish ending with earthy character. Nice value.

Elevage in cement tanks has really seen the freshness of this wine take centre stage with aromas of tart red fruits, some dried cranberry, blackcurrant pastille, some leafiness with slight orange zest and Campari like bitters coming through too. Delicious on it own but with that perfect pitched acidity and leathery tannin profile go at this with wild boar Ragu for extra pleasure 🍝

At less than $20, this hit all of the right ST notes and held up just fine into the next evening.

Had the 2011 vintage. Supertuscan = super tasty! A wonderful blend of Sangiovese, Cab Sauv & Merlot. Berries and dark chocolate flavours are prominent. Bold with lots of layers of flavour, medium bodied but still an easy drink :)

Homemade pasta in a paper bowl, easy drinking super Tuscan, I'm in! Black olive, fennel, dusty earth, soft tannins and acid that wants food. Yum.

Approachable, zippy, cherry chianti. Complex with smooth encroaching tannin. Very well balanced.

Warm and clunky, with obtrusive oak. Perks up a bit with food.
