Winemaker 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.

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
The Wine Advocate

The 2007 Trenta Vendemmie was made to celebrate Castellare’s 30th harvest. It is a blend of Sangioveto, Malvasia Nera, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, essentially equal parts of the three flagships, Sodi di San Niccolo, Poggio ai Merli and Coniale. Dark cherries, plums, mocha, espresso and licorice meld together beautifully in this harmonious, resonant wine. The opulence of the vintage comes through in spades as this voluptuous wine opens up in the glass. This is yet another striking wine from Castellare. Like so many 2007s, there is plenty of early appeal. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.

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.

Praised for its stately Renaissance-era chateaux as well as its diverse variety of wines, the picturesque Loire valley produces elegant and underrated red, white, and rosé as well as sparkling and sweet wines. Just south of Paris, the appellation lies along the river of the same name and stretches from the center of France to the Atlantic coast. Geography and climate differ greatly along the Loire’s vast length. Furthest inland, the climate is continental, becoming classically maritime as it reaches the ocean. Accordingly, the Loire Valley is perhaps the most diverse wine-producing region in France—this region does a little bit of everything, and it does it all quite well.

The Loire can be divided into three main growing areas, from west to east: the Lower Loire, Middle Loire, and Upper/Central Loire. The Pay Nantais region of the Lower Loire is focused on acidic, saline whites that beg for fresh seafood. Muscadet, made from the Melon de Bourgogne variety, is the most noteworthy appellation here. The Middle Loire contains Anjou, Saumur, and Touraine. In Anjou, Chenin Blanc reaches its zenith, producing outstanding dry and sweet wines reminiscent of crisp apples dipped in honey. Cabernet Franc dominates red and rosé production here, supported often by Grolleau and Cabernet Sauvignon. Sparkling Crémant de Loire is a specialty of Saumur. Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc are common in Touraine as well, along with Sauvignon Blanc, Gamay, and Malbec (known locally as Côt). The Upper Loire is Sauvignon Blanc country, home to the world-renowned appellations of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé. Pinot Noir and Gamay produce bright, easy-drinking red wines here.
