A tight and linear red with blackberry, tile and crushed-stone aromas and flavors. Hazelnut undertones. Medium body, firm and chewy tannins and a lively finish. I like the dusty texture to this. Drink or hold. Better with a little more bottle age

The Castellani Family produce classic wines in Tuscany since more than 150 years. Every generation continually experiment with their vineyards and cellars in order to select the best Tuscan wines to be bottled under the family brand.
Exporters of wine since 1903, the Castellani family have founded their high-quality wines on the belief that "the quality of the wine starts in the vineyard". For the past 25 years, the family has worked hard to refine the soil types and microclimates that enhance their 'great Tuscan vines', investing in research and new technologies to ensure the Castellani name continues to be associated with 'memorable wines'.
Deep ruby red. Rich with notes of cherries, plums, and iris. Deep cherry and leather flavors with subtle wood notes. Supple tannins, good acidity, and a lingering finish.
Perfect with flavorful roasts, pastas, and cheeses.
