Chianti Castiglioni 2017 has a ruby-red colour tending towards bright, brilliant violet. The nose contains pleasant blackberry, redcurrant and cherry preserve notes with touches of floral and spicy notes. In the mouth, the wine is lively and round and its fruity aromas return to the palate, giving a rich, fulfilling finish. Full-flavoured dishes such as pappardelle pasta in a meat sauce, as well as roast chicken, sautéed beef with vegetables, and medium-aged cheeses.

Wine EnthusiastMade with Sangiovese and Merlot, this has aromas of black-skinned berry, blue flower and a whiff of tilled soil. The easygoing palate offers plum and clove alongside supple tannins. Drink soon.

Wine AdvocateThis wine has a well-deserved reputation for steady consistency and good value. The 2017 Chianti Castiglioni is fresh and vibrant with wild strawberry, dark plum and pressed violet. There are pretty earthy sensations that give the wine a bit of extra texture and depth. This is an easy-drinking Chianti, executed in the true tradition of this Tuscan appellation, that would pair with any basic spaghetti and tomato sauce combination.
