Castiglioni Chianti 2015 presents itself as a deep ruby red with scarlet hues. Notes of cherry, strawberry and raspberry are all present in the nose alongside floral scents of rose and violet. In the mouth the wine is warm and soft, possessing a good acidity and excellent balance. The decidedly fruity finish is harmonious and persistent. Serving Suggestions: Full-flavoured dishes such as meat-sauced pappardelle, and roast chicken as well, sautéed beef with vegetables, and medium-aged cheeses.

Wine EnthusiastA blend of Sangiovese and Merlot, this delightful red has fruity aromas of wild berry and plum. The easy-drinking palate offers black cherry and a spicy note of clove alongside polished tannins. It's made to be drunk young, so enjoy soon.

Wine SpectatorThe bright cherry and raspberry fruit gets added depth from herb and bitter almond accents. Moderately long and juicy on the finish. Drink now. 75,000 cases made.
