Castelli del Grevepesa

Clemente VII Chianti Classico DOCG

Wine Type: Red Wine

Country: Italy

Region: Toscana

Grapes: 100% Sangiovese

Tasting Notes: Intense ruby red color. Bouquet with strong aromas of forest fruits well combined with toasted notes of vanilla and spices. The flavor displays perfect harmony with significant sweet tannins that give it a velvety flavor with considerable fullness of body.

Food Pairings: Pair this wine with roasted or grilled red meat, game, or classic Italian pasta dishes.

James Suckling: “A juicy, fruity red with blackberry, walnut and coffee -bean character. Medium-bodied with a solid core of fruit and creamy tannins. It’s long and flavorful. Drink or hold.”

Wine Spectator: “A refined version, with excellent balance between the cherry and plum fruit, the vibrant acidity and ripe tannins. Fresh oregano, thyme and mineral notes add depth as this firms up on the lingering finish. Best from 2023 through 2030.”

Wine Enthusiast: “Raspberry candy and dried cherries meet notes of pennies and warm bricks on the nose, with a palate that stays light and bright with fresh cherries and topsoil held together loosely with flexible tannins.”
