CASTELLO DEL TREBBIO Chianti Superiore DOCG
CASTELLO DEL TREBBIO Chianti Superiore DOCG. This gorgeous DOCG Chianti is full of lively fruit and is a smooth-drinking wine. The wine is predominantly sangiovese (85 percent) with the rest split between local grapes canaiolo and ciliegiolo.
It is a deep ruby red in the glass with aromas of berries, flowers and spice. On the palate, there is a smooth balance of fruit and acid with a warm and pleasant mouthfeel. Medium-bodied with a lingered aftertaste, it tastes like a mouthful of mixed berries.
After fermentation, the wine spends six months in Slavonian oak barrels followed by three months in stainless steel tanks.
Though based in an 830-year-old castle, the winery uses all the best modern techniques. The vineyards are farmed organically and follow BioIntegrale practices.
