Available for:
Intense ruby red. It is a complex wine. Its bouquet blends the typical fruity aromas of Sangiovese (such as blackberry, ripe marasca, plum) with the elegant notes of wood. Rich wine. On the palate it is velvety and harmonious with an excellent balance between acidity and sweet tannins. Aging wine, gives its best from the 5th year after the harvest. Pair with grilled red meat. Its harmony and typicality are also exalted perfectly by aged cheeses.

The 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva is laced with hints of black cherry, sage, mint, tobacco an incense. The aromatics are quite expressive in the Riserva. Bright acids lend energy to this deceptively mid-weight Riserva from Casaloste.

The organic 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva (made with 95% Sangiovese and a small percentage of complementary grapes, all aged in French Allier oak) opens to medium-dark concentration and savory aromas. Beyond the dark fruit, the wine shows toasted espresso bean, spice and perfumed tea leaf. Some 7,000 bottles were made.

A dense, brooding style, this red evokes black cherry, plum and tar flavors. Offers beefy yet not overly astringent tannins, ending with moderate length. Best from 2023 through 2032. 580 cases made, 180 cases imported.
