Tasting notes on the 2017 vintage:
'A beam of pure cherry and blackberry fruit defines this intense, racy red, which is firm and tensile, with fine balance and a lingering aftertaste of vibrant fruit, graphite and tobacco flavors. Sangioveto and Canaiolo. Drink now through 2033.' – Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator 94/100

'Castellare's 2017 Chianti Classico is a gorgeous, tasty wine that reflects the personality of the vintage nicely. Sweet red cherry, rose petal, mint and sweet spice are pushed forward in this very pretty and appealing entry-level wine that reflects the ripeness of the year, but remains very much within the classic, mid-weight style that is such a Castellare signature.' – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 89/100
