Castell'in Villa "Riserva" 2010

100% Sangiovese
A still red wine from the Chianti, Tuscany region of Italy.

Powerful and lively. Plum, black cherry, licorice, tar.

Tasting Notes

The 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva from Castell’in Villa opens on the nose with ripe plum, black cherry, licorice and tar notes.

Dense and lively, with a powerful finish.

Although this Chianti Classico drinks nicely now it will benefit from another ten years or so in bottle.

Drink now through 2029.

Wine making grape

Sangiovese is a red Italian wine grape variety named after the Latin sanguis Jovis, which means “Jupiter’s blood.” Though it is native to most of central Italy, from Romagna to Lazio, Campania, and Sicily, it is best known outside of Italy as the sole component of Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino, as well as the primary component of the blends Chianti, Carmignano, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and Morellino di Scansano, though it can also be used to make varietal wines like Sangiovese di Romagna
