Chianti Classico Rocca di Castagnoli is a wine with an excellent complexity and structure. It has a red color with violet hues. Intense nose rich in fruity, winy aromas. Accompanied by a pleasant fruity cherry component, the fresh note is particularly remarkable and balanced with hints of lively tannins, which are perfectly integrated with the wine's extract components. Food Pairing: White meats, medium-aged cheeses and roasts.

Wine AdvocateThe Rocca di Castagnoli 2016 Chianti Classico offers balanced spice and dark fruit. It does a great job of facing these two elements off one another. The bouquet shows sweet tones of ripe cherry, blackberry and plum. A second wave of aromas delivers spice, leather and tobacco. This is a mid-weight blend of 90% Sangiovese with 10% Canaiolo and Colorino that is enormously attractive to drink right now. It's also an incredible value (with 250,000 bottles made). I actually liked this base wine more than the two top-shelf releases.
