The 2018 Chianti Classico is an absolutely joyous wine. Bright red cherry fruit, tangy acids and sweet floral notes all run a translucent, super-expressive Chianti Classico that quite frankly knocks it out of the park. The 2018 is so delineated, so vibrant and just so incredibly delicious. The purity of the flavors is just remarkable. The oak needs a bit of time to fully integrate, but it already has over the last few months. This is what Sangiovese (called Sangioveto here) and Chianti Classico are all about. Best of all, the 2018 is a screaming value. Don't miss it. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2020)

Slightly smokey, subtlety spicy, smooth. Goes well with white meats bro

While stay at home orders are lightening up, we continue to stay at home and drink wine. This Castellare is a fine Chianti... not quite the same as when sipping from a rooftop in Firenze.
