Castellare Di Castellina 2014 – Chianti Classico Riserva

The nose is aromatic and offers power as well as a slight concentration and a slight richness. It reveals notes of crushed blackberry, crushed strawberry and small notes of ripe / crushed blueberry combined with touches of garrigue, black olive, chocolate as well as an imperceptible hint of tea, cardamom and laurel. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a slight juiciness, a beautiful acid frame, a slight suavity, a good guideline, dynamism as well as a slight gourmandise. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe / juicy red berries, crushed blackberry and small notes of cassis associated with small / slight touches of blueberry, garrigue, racy minerality and sweet spices. Tannins are well-built. There is a slight hint of juicy /acidulous fruits on the finish (brings gourmandise). Good persistence.
