Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby in color, red fruits on the nose blend with those of blacks and vanilla with hints of coffee and chocolate. In the mouth it is immediately obvious the great structure, but the delicacy of refined tannins make it velvety and harmonious. A wine with a great finish that suggests the extremely long life it will have.

Pair with red meat roasts and stews, poultry, game and red sauces.

About Castellare:

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. Panerai feels it is important to understand and respect the experience of the world's best wineries and to apply this understanding to viticulture in Italy. He has great respect for technology from other winemaking regions and chooses to utilize this technology to move forward while rediscovering and reshaping some of the great traditions of Tuscany.

The birds on Castellare's labels symbolize Panerai's commitment to environmentally sound cultivation. Herbicides are not used, nor are any systemic pesticides. Chemical treatment of any kind is shunned. Hunting is also prohibited on the property. As a result of these practices, the property has become a virtual refuge for wildlife, including many of the birds pictured on the labels.
