Tuscany, Italy


Winemaker: Paolo Panerai
Vineyard/Year: Castellare / 2018

The vineyards of this 46 acre estate are found in a natural amphitheater in the heart of Tuscany’s Chianti Classico region. The story of Castellare is the story of Paolo Panerai, who entered the world of winemaking at age 37 after a career in Italian journalism.

Chianti wines are made primarily of Sangiovese, with other varieties comprising up to 20% of the blend. Bright ruby red colour with purple highlights. Thanks to the harmony of the tannins, combined with the delicate complexity of aromas and the final note of sweetness, the wine is characterised by an excellent balance in the mouth.
