Winemaker's Notes:

Castello di Meleto Rosso Toscano is ruby red color with purple highlights. The wine shows intense aromas of fruit with hints of cherry and small berries. It has a medium structure and great balance; pleasantly fresh with soft tannins that are well-integrated.

About Castello di Meleto:

The structure of the Castle of Meleto, a 13th century majestic building, rises on a gentle hill, in the heart of the Chianti Classico area, at a small distance from the border between the old republics of Florence and Siena. Its very large Estate covers more than 1000 hectares (over 2400 acres), 180 of which are devoted to viticulture. The wines are mainly made with Sangiovese del Chianti grapes, which have grown for centuries in those vineyards. 180 hectares planted represent the fourth largest property in the region.
