Castellare di Castellina Chianti Classico Riserva Il Poggiale 2016
Vibrant and lively ruby colour. The nose displays typical violet flowers, cherry fruit and a mineral note. Opens immediately to the palate with freshness and flavour dominating, while the pleasant finish offers fragrant fruity notes.
About the winemakerIn the 1970s, four estates came together to form Castellare di Castellina: Castellare, Caselle, San Niccolo and Le Case. Together they cover a total of 80ha – including 12 planted by olive groves. The vineyards occupy 33ha on the hillsides of a natural southeast-facing amphitheater, at an average height of 370 meters above sea level. This excellent exposure to the sun, good water drainage and a mixed soil containing limestone marl, galestro and a little clay, produce well-structured, intense red and white wines, suitable for long bottle ageing.
