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. Pair with white meats, medium-aged cheeses and roasts.

VinousThe 2016 Chianti Classico offers a super-appealing combination of dense, pliant fruit and supporting structure. Succulent red cherry, white pepper, mint and dried flowers all flesh out in the glass. Ideally, readers should plan on cellaring the 2016 for at least a few years. This is a very serious wine.

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.
