Castellare's 2019 Chianti Classico is a terrific introduction to this range. Bright and beautifully perfumed, with lovely energy, the 2019 is all classy. Crushed flowers, bright acids and cedar lift a core of red berry fruit. The 2019 is vibrant, deep and full of character. I loved it. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2021)

Medium Ruby with aromas of red fruits, floral and sweet spice. On the palate flavors of cherry, currant and raspberry with notes of tobacco, tar and banking spices. Firm tannins, vivid acidity, medium finish ending with fruit and cedar spice. Drink now, can short-term age as well!

Really underripe. Needs a few more years. Tasty but young.
