Castello di Verrazzano, Chianti Classico DOCG, 2015
Verrazzano's Chianti Classico, like others in the Greve area of Chianti have typically more concentrated flavours than in Castellina, Gaiole or Castelnuovo Berardegna. However, this is a classic Chianti, deep ruby red in colour with aromas of mature fruits like cherry and blackberry. Light in body with a little oak (from 18 months in barrel) with fine grained tannins and pleasant bursts of juicy wild cherry, cinnamon and a hint of star anise.
An Organic wine that pairs well with Tuscan appetisers, red meat and game.Learn More£17.50
Chianti Classico, Acino d'Oro, Bottega, 2014
The Chianti Classico Bottega Acino d'Oro is born in vineyards located in the historical area of Tuscany, Italy. It is made with Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, harvested only by hand. After crushing, the fermentation takes place with maceration in wooden vats at a controlled temperature for about 15 days. What follows is a period of ageing in oak barrels for 3-4 months. This fine Chianti Classico has aromas of fruit and spices with a fresh and dry, balanced and slightly tannic palate.
Pairs well with red meats, cured meats and seasoned cheeses.Learn More
Castello di Verrazzano, Chianti Classico Riserva, 2013
Produced only in top vintages (the first was in 1924) the Riserva is one of the most representative wines of the winery and best expresses the varietal characteristics of Sangiovese.
It's an intense ruby colour with aromas of ripe red fruits, followed by hints of tobacco, black pepper and sweet wood. The palate is savoury with morello cherry, liquorice and clove with tannins that blend in well with the fruity component. Long lasting finish and, like the Gran Selezione, it can stand up to full flavoured dishes such as grilled meats, roasts and ripe cheese.Learn More£26.50
