Castellare di Castellina – Il Poggiale 2014 – Chianti Classico Riserva

The nose is fruity, slightly tight and offers a small density as well as elegance. It reveals notes of small berries, cassis and small notes of blueberry associated with touches of olive, racy minerality, garrigue as well as very discreet hints of sweet tobacco and tea. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, silky, well-built, very slightly tight and offers a beautiful fresh frame, a beautiful juiciness, a nice roundness, a beautiful suavity, precision, a slight acidity (in the background) as well as elegance. On the palate this wine expresses notes of cherry, crushed cassis and small notes of blueberry associated with touches of ripe / crushed raspberry, chocolate, toasted oak / vanilla as well as slight touches of garrigue / olive. Tannins are well-built. Good length and good persistence. Beautiful grain on the finish.
