One of the most versatile and well priced Italian reds, the Rocca di Castagnoli Chianti Classico 2012 is outstanding for the price!

Situated in the heart of Tuscany, the Castagnoli estate produces one of the most sought after Chianti Classico's for under $15. 90+ scores the past four vintages, this bright and expressive red shows notes of rose petals, licorice and sweet red berries, woven together in a finessed, silky palate. The 2012 vintage gives the bottle enough age where the tannins and oak are well integrated, showing a ton of class and nuance.

Rating
"Sweet spice and cherry notes are the highlights here, accented by milk chocolate and tobacco hints. This is fruity enough to stand up to the dusty tannins on the finish." The Wine Spectator, 90 Points

Wine maker notes
The Rocca di Castagnoli Chianti Classico comes from high altitude vineyards around Gaiole, and is the best expression of "Galestro" type soil. Light in color, but medium to full bodied on the palate, these are Chianti's of extraordinary elegance. Galestro is compressed clay, which splits easy and reveals on its inside colorfully mineral layers on which the roots of the grapevine easily feed. It's these minerals that gives the Galestro grown Sangiovese incredible richness and finesse.
