Castellani Chianti Classico Riserva 2012
The historic Chianti Classico region of Tuscany has been producing wines since the 13th century. This wine from the Castellani family is the perfect blend of Old World and New World. Made of Sangiovese with hints of local grapes, this has red and black fruit flavors with nuances of leather, earth, licorice and sage. Flavorful and delicious on its own, it was even lovelier with dried salami, assorted cheeses, oven roasted tomatoes and spiced olives. Bring to your favorite local Italian BYO and Buon Appetito! For local shoppers, this Chianti comes in a wood box, making a stunning gift case for under $200.
