Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby red color. Intense aromas of red berry fruits with a hint of violet. Pleasantly fresh, round with soft tannins and a nice finish.

Ideal with finger foods, pizza, red meats and fresh or moderately aged cheeses.

Blend: 70% Sangiovese, 30% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 89
Wine Spectator
Packed with ripe, fresh fruit, this red is lush and forthcoming, showing focused cherry, balsamic and tea flavors. A slight burr of tannins graces the finish. Sangiovese and Merlot. Drink now through 2018.

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.

Best known for lusciously sweet dessert wines but home to many distinctive dry whites and reds, Hungary is an exciting country at the crossroads of tradition and innovation. Mostly flat with a continental climate, Hungary is almost perfectly bisected by the Danube River (known here as the Duna), and contains Central Europe’s largest lake, Balaton. Soil types vary throughout the country but some of the best vines, particularly in Tokaji, are planted on mineral-rich volcanic soil.

Tokaji, Hungary’s most famous wine region, is home to the venerated botrytized sweet wine of the same name, produced from a blend of Furmint and Hárslevelű. Dry and semi-dry wines are also make in Tokaji, using the same varieties. Other native white varieties include the relatively aromatic and floral, Irsai Olivér, Cserszegi Fűszeres and Királyleányka, as well as the distinctively smoky and savory, Juhfark. Common red varieties include velvety, Pinot Noir-like Kadarka and juicy, easy-drinking Kékfrankos (known elsewhere as Blaufränkisch).
