Chianti auditioning - nice fruit forward (American palate pleasing) style

Castellare is among best of Chianti winemakers with full-bodied, balanced with deep berry flavored wines. Smooth, balanced, perfect tannins, acidity, dark enough for steak but Reserva is better. 2017 was a good year. The Chianti Classico is not up to the standards of the near Brunello Reserva but great in itself. Buy again.

Silky, seductive and mellow. Some hints of merlot.

Very sweet nose, light as a feather on the palate. Very delicate, elegant and discreet. Leather, dark chocolate, salted caramel on the nose.

Tuoksussa makeaa kirsikkaa ja hennosti kuivattua aprikoosia. Maku seuraa hienosti tuoksua nostaen kirsikan ja sitä seuraavan hedelmähapon etualalle.
