Winemaker Notes

A bright ruby red color, this Chianti Classico shows well-integrated aromas of ripe black cherries, forest floor, tobacco, and a hint of cedar spice. On the palate, it shows both firm structure and refreshing acidity, making it a versatile food wine.

Perfect for rich meat-based sauces, bean soups, barbecue, and roasted game.

Wine Spectator
A graphite aroma introduces a burst of fresh cherry flavor in this fluid, supple red, with ample tannins. The density carries the detailed fruit, spice and tobacco notes, with fine length. Drink now through 2022.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Chianti Classico delivers a classic interpretation of Sangiovese – called "Sangioveto" on Paolo Panerai's insistence – with 5% Canaiolo. The wine shows enormous fruit purity and floral lift that brings the bouquet to life before your eyes and nose. You'll want to stock up on these bottles and keep them handy for informal nights when friends or family stop by for dinner. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.

Castellare, Italy
Castellare Winery Image

The Castellare estate is one of the best examples of tradition in the area. The winery’s owner, Paolo Panerai, has closely studied the world’s best wineries and applied this understanding and experience to viticulture in Italy. The Castellare property, located in Tuscany’s Castellina in Chianti, has become a virtual refuge for wildlife, including many of the birds pictured on their labels. With each vintage, the Castellare label shows a different bird, symbolizing the estate’s commitment to environmentally sound cultivation. The birds selected for the labels are among the rarest creatures in Chianti, and represent birds threatened by extinction, mostly due to synthetic chemical products and hunting, both of which are forbidden on this property. In the town of Castellina, one of Chianti’s best locales, Castellare’s vineyards are at 1200 feet elevation – only a few Chianti Classico vineyards are higher. The vineyards of this 46-acre property are found in a natural amphitheater in the heart of the Classico region. At Castellare, the yield-per-acre is very low, far lower than the maximum level allowed by Chianti Classico DOCG rules, which enhances the concentration of aromas and flavors.
