£19.50

Category: Italy, TOSCANA, Casale dello Sparviero, Castellina In Chianti, 2018

Casale Dello Sparviero Chianti Classico Riserva is a wonderfully refined and elegant wine. It has complex olfactory structure, great freshness and length.

“Toasted herbs and nuts on the nose with notes of dark fruit and ground cloves as well. Medium-bodied with fine, lightly firm tannins. Some black licorice comes through. Slightly austere feel, but compact and focused. Drink now.” 91 Points, James Suckling, September 2021

Casale dello Sparviero (‘sparrowhawk’) is situated in the heart of Chianti Classico overlooking the old hill-top town of Castellina-in-Chianti. The Casale was once a 17th century monastery and the vineyards today extend over approximately 250 acres. The wine making takes place in modern cellars but the ageing is still carried out in the older part of the buildings in charming traditional cellars.
