Casaloste Chianti Classico 2016 750ml
The Chianti Classico Casaloste was produced for the first time with the vintage 1993 and since then has always respected the character of the younger Sangiovese, made elegant by the small note of Merlot. A wine that expresses the genuineness of the Tuscan conviviality, with lively but very pleasant tannins. The wine bears the original name of the stone tower, where the owners still live with their family: the name "Casaloste" has ancient origins that are lost in the past, when the building was used as a sighting tower.
Aging: oak casks of Allier, and barriques for about 12 months
Nose: at the beginning you can perceive a strong fresh red fruit, such as currants, strawberries and cherries. The violet is clearly recognizable on the palate.
Taste: pleasant, fruity wine, supported by the typical acidity of Sangiovese and characterized by long and elegant tannins.
