2013 Chianti Classico Castagnoli - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $29.00

ADD

Perched at 450 meters above sea level atop a towering hillside overlooking the magnificent Tuscan countryside, Castagnoli enjoys a microclimate of its own, where cool nights favor bright, focused acidity that accentuates this red’s crunchy schist backbone. The winemaking is elemental: the harvest is brought in by hand, destemmed and crushed, and left to ferment naturally in open bins with occasional punchdowns and pumpovers. Aging in neutral wood conserves Sangiovese’s vibrant fruit and herbaceous qualities, yielding a delicious Chianti Classico for now or later, with extraordinary potential at table. –Anthony Lynch
