"Located in the Gaiole district, with vast extensions of vineyard land into the Castellina district of the Chianti Classico, Rocca di Castagnoli may be the Classico's largest estate in acreage planted to vine. This does not hinder the thriving estate to produce some of the most distinguished examples of Chianti Classico. By bottling only the very best from their production, results of great typical character have been achieved. Also contributing to this character is clearly the soil — 'Galestro' is a stone look-alike compacted form of clay which captures high amounts of minerals. This estate represents the rare quest for classical, acidity driven, but ripe Chianti Classico from higher altitude vineyards." —winemaker

Blend: 90% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo, 5% Colorino
"Cherry and berry, vanilla and tobacco flavors are etched onto the taut profile of this red. The finish is tight, with gum-tingling tannins. Best from 2017 through 2024. 30,000 cases made. Smart Buy." —Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator

"A delicate and fruity Chianti Classico with bright citrus undertones plus dried cherry and strawberry character. Medium body, delicate finish. Drink now." —JamesSuckling.com

"Made with Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo and 5% Colorino, this opens with aromas of dark berry, grilled herb, menthol and a whiff of leather. The savory palate doles out juicy cherry, black raspberry, licorice, clove and mocha. Firm but polished tannins and fresh acidity hold it all together. Drink through 2018." —Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
