Details

Castellare di Castellina was born in the 1970s when four smaller estates combined together to create one larger estate. Merlot grown in Tuscany can be stunning, but the land is not always suitable for growing this varietal. However, the vineyards at Castellare di Castellina are ideal for Merlot. Since the first vintage in 1999, they have been regarded as a benchmark for the expectations of quality merlot in the region.

In the glass, the color is a deep and vibrant purple. On the nose you will find complex layers of dark fruit with blackberry and blueberry coming to the forefront. On the palate, undulating notes of raspberry, cocoa, cherry, vanilla, plum, and coffee all work together in amazing harmony. The finish is long and ends with a vibrant fruit driven aftertaste.

The wine wants to be paired with red meat and the gamier the better. Wild boar, freshly hunted game, liver. The rich quality of the wine works perfectly with the texture and quality of these dishes.

Only 350 cases are made of this special wine that consistently scores well with the most important wine publications vintage after vintage.
