Castelli del Grevepesa

Castelgreve Chianti Classico DOCG

Wine Type: Red Wine

Country: Italy

Region: Toscana

Grapes: 95% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot

Winery Tasting Notes: Ruby red color, very intense. The scent is elegant, with a nuance of violets and a flavor of ripe fruit. Tasty, well-balanced wine with soft and velvety tannins, good persistence.

Food Pairings: Grilled red meat, including game recipes, spicy and ripe cheese.

Wine Enthusiast: “Sweet and sour fruit and umami intensity connect nose to palate, with both offering strawberries, cherries, meat jus and crushed rocks. Tannins maintain their integrity even if they’re relaxing.”

James Suckling: “Plenty of fruity and floral allure on the nose, following through to a very clean, medium-bodied palate with just the right dose of tannin to allow the fruit to push through to the end. A well-balanced CC that’s drinkable now, but will be nice in a few years’ time too.”

Wine Spectator: A firm, linear style, this offers cherry, strawberry, iron, earth and tobacco flavors. Dusty tannins line the finish for now, yet this is balanced overall. Fine length.”
