Castello di Verrazzano, Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG, 2013

Tuscany, Italy

Notes:

A veritable super Tuscan since 1982, the Castello di Verrazzano Gran Selezione competes with the very best Chianti's in Tuscany. 


100% Sangiovese creates a unique wine with a deep and impenetrable ruby red colour. Fruity aromas of cherries, blackberries, raspberries are underlined by hints of oak and vanilla. While in the mouth it's elegant and complex with closely woven tannins both smooth and pleasant joined to notes of fruit and spice, oak and vanilla. Expect a long finish.


Best served 18-20°C with roasts, game and ripe cheese.

Castello di Verrazzano

Castello di Verrazzano has a long, enduring history. Located in the heart of Tuscany the property housed many aristocratic families over the years with a winemaking history dating back to 1150.

Found in the Chianti Classico area, between the Italian cities of Florence and Siena, Castello di Verrazzano holds a beautiful position that was firstly an Etruscan settlement and later, Roman. In the 7th Century the castle became the property of the most famous resident, Giovanni da Verrazzano, an explorer who discovered the bay of New York and drew up the first map of the East coast of the U.S.

Now owned by the Cappellini family, the great tradition of winemaking continues. From 1958, when they took over the castle, they set about restoring the villa, surrounding agriculture and vineyards using traditional methods, respecting the historical and architectonic features.

There are 105 acres of vines thriving in Verrazzano's limestone-rich soil, which is reputedly responsible for the singular blend of muscularity and finesse evident in the Verrazzano wines.

Regional Info

Tuscany

Perhaps the most recognised region of Italy when it comes to wine, Tuscany is home to some of the world’s oldest wineries and boasts a barnstorming collection of some of the most-loved wines on the planet. It is suggested that the Sangiovese grape – the signature grape of the Tuscany wine region – used to grow in the wild here as far back as the 4th century B.C., but the undulating green hills and Mediterranean climate make this area of Italy ripe for growing many kinds of grapes, including international varieties. Perhaps best known for the big bold reds of Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and Chianti made from Sangiovese along with the Super Tuscan blends, Tuscany wine offers rich flavours and high quality in almost all of the wines from the region.
