Castellani Chianti DOCG 2017

"Are you new to Italy, or looking for a crowd pleaser to add to your collection? Then look no further than this traditionally made Chianti produced by Castellani in the heart of Tuscany. Its ripe and red, filled with cherries and dried herbs with a medium body, making it a delight to drink. Value for money is outstanding and we’re sure this will be a favourite on any dinner table. Drink now with pizza or pasta, or chill down slightly for quaffing all summer long." - 17/20, Wine Central Tasting Panel

"Chianti is Italy’s most famous wine and contains the country’s most planted grape variety, Sangiovese. This is a dry, juicy and medium bodied with characteristically earthy flavours that define good Chianti. This is a good quality wine offering great value for money and will make a superb match with classic Italian pizza toppings - especially black olives, fresh herbs, tomatoes and mushrooms." - Joelle Thomson, Wine Writer

Sangiovese is grown all over Italy but finds its greatest expression in the central region of Tuscany, home to all wines labelled Chianti.

Chianti is a notoriously charming style of wine with its food-friendly flavours and medium body, and this drop is no exception. Juicy fruits are balanced by herby notes which really lift when paired with signature Italian cuisine.
