"Castello di Meleto Chianti Classico is a deep ruby red color. The wine offers a complex nose of cherries, floral and vanilla notes Soft and round with well-integrated tannins; excellent ­balance with a persistent finish Excellent with pastas in meat sauce, grilled meats and aged cheeses." —winemaker
"A pretty, open-knit wine, the 2012 Chianti Classico Meleto is a good choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Crushed flowers, sweet red berries, mint and cinnamon add lovely shades of nuance on the perfumed, ethereal finish. Drinking window: 2015-2019." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"Dried cherry, dark berry, tobacco and grilled herb sensations all come together in this fresh, straightforward red. Smooth but rather fleeting tannins support the bright, juicy flavors. Drink through 2016." —Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
