90% Sangioveto and 10% Canaiolo

Castellare di Castellina was born of the union of four estates (Castellare, Caselle, San Niccolò and Le Case) on the initiative of Paolo Panerai, with the aim of producing wine of the best possible quality.

It is in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, covers a total of 80 hectares - including 20 occupied by olive groves. The vineyards occupy 33 hectares on the hillsides of a natural south-east facing amphitheatre, at an average height of 370 meters above sea level. The vines are aged between 7 and over 45 years, and yields per hectare are kept very low to obtain the maximum quality.

The authentic Chianti Classico. Only native vines, without Cabernet and Merlot, to maintain the typical formula of the most famous of Italian wines, without chasing the fashion that, using even South wines, darkens the beautiful ruby red of Sangioveto.

Tasting notes:
'The colour of this Chanti Classico is that ruby red of the Sangioveto grapes. The nose is fragrant, fresh with pleasant hints of red fruit, licorice, black currant and a hint of vanilla. Dominated by the typical notes of Sangiovese chiantigiano. Expresses a pleasant sweetness on the palate, it is round, soft and fruity. Acidity and persistence characterise a very elegant aftertaste.' – Winemaker
