With the 2010 vintage, Castello di Meleto's Chianti Classico refocuses its effort on a more territorial style. The addition of Alicante, a native varietal of the region, brings a more traditional identity to this wine, lending a round, smooth character to the palate.
Deep ruby red color. The wine has a complex nose of cherries, floral and vanilla notes. It is soft and round with well-integrated tannins; excellent balance with a persistent finish.
Blend: 90% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot, 5% Alicante
