Rocca Di Castagnoli 2013 Chianti Classico: Meets all the expectations of a delicious Chianti Classico!

Hello Friends,

Today’s Quick Sip is the 2013 Chianti Classico from Rocca Di Castagnoli. Chianti is a large wine producing region in Tuscany, Italy. It is one of the most popular and recognizable Italian wine regions in the world. And the Sangiovese grape variety is the undisputed king of the region. For Chianti Classico, a minimum of 80% of Sangiovese is required by law. This wine is composed of 90% Sangiovese with additions of 5% Canaiolo and 5% Colorino. The fruit was sourced from the high altitude hills near the village of Gaiole. The resultant wine is expressive and well-balanced, meeting all the expectations of a delicious Chianti Classico. This wine retails for $25 but is under $20 at Cork Exclusive. Even better, free shipping is offered on any purchase of four or more bottles of wines or spirits. Given the time of year, I recommend this wine for backyard cookouts as well as weeknight pizza dinners. For further information and where you can find this wine, please see my tasting notes below.

Rocca Di Castagnoli 2013 Chianti Classico

Rocca Di Castagnoli 2013 Chianti Classico (SRP $25): This Chianti Classico pours ruby-red with purple hues. Inviting scents of leather, mint, and muted dried herbs accent tart cherry and red licorice flavors. In the mouth, it is medium-bodied, fresh and a little juicy, with nice texture, all supported by slightly dusty tannins and notable vivacity. A pleasing, fruity finish caps off this delightful sipper. Overall, an expressive wine that’s great for everyday drinking and also a great match for pizza, red sauce dishes, and just about anything off the grill. Region: Chianti Classico, Tuscany, Italy. Other info: ABV 13.5%, cork enclosure.
