Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby color. Intense and complex, typical of the grape variety with notes of cherries, floral and vanilla hints soft and round with well integrated tannins, pleasantly alcoholic. Good texture and excellent balance. The finish is persistent and mouth filling.

This wine will pair beautifully with roasted meat, stews, game dishes, pasta with hearty meat sauces and aged cheeses.

JS 91
James Suckling
A wine, with a lovely core of ripe fruit that gives a cherry and spice character. Full and velvety with a polished and caressing texture. Clearly outstanding.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Chianti Classico possesses lovely nuance and detail. Tobacco, crushed flowers and licorice are some of the nuances that add complexity to the fruit in this delicious, medium-bodied Chianti Classico.

Castello di Meleto, , Italy
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.

Napa Valley

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
