Glass
Medium open goblet
Medium open goblet

Perfect for young and medium bodied red wines which don't require excessive oxygenation to open. The opening, slightly tighter than the body of the glass, favors the concentration of aromas towards the nose, enhancing the perception of aromas and limiting the dispersion

RED WINE CHIANTI CLASSICO CASTELLARE DI CASTELLINA 2020 DESCRIPTION

The Chianti Classico Castellare is a red wine that proudly claims its origins, a wine that has the soul and warmth of real Tuscany. The cellar Castellare needs no introduction: the Sodi di San Niccolo are famous all over the world and are the best part of a Made in Italy recognized and affirmed outside our borders. This Chianti Classico is a red wine really well done, which is surprising for elegance and typical, especially when compared to a really surprising. A Chianti that we like, convinces us and accompanies us hand in hand to the enchanting hills of his native Tuscany. A Chianti that has something to say and you can listen with pleasure. Try it.
