Castello di Meleto

The Chianti Classico Riserva Castello di Meleto is a rich and enveloping red wine, aged for about two years in French and Slavonian oak barrels. Full and soft on the palate, with a long and persistent finish accompanied by silky tannins, the nose expresses notes of ripe red fruit, aromatic herbs and spicy and peppery hints due to the long aging in wood. Perfect with aged cheeses or savory meat and game dishes

The Chianti Classico Riserva Castello di Meleto is the epitome of the oenological excellence of Tuscany, a symphony of flavor that captures the essence of this land. With production located in the heart of Chianti, Castello di Meleto is known for its privileged position, crossed by the Massellone stream, and for the variety of its soils, which extend up to 600 meters above sea level. These characteristics make the wine very fresh and complex, a spokesperson for the colors and flavors of this refined region.

The Chianti Classico Riserva Castello di Meleto is the result of a careful selection of the best Sangiovese grapes, accompanied by a small percentage of Merlot, from the vineyards of Casi, Meleto, Poggiarso, Moci, and San Piero. The harvest, carried out by hand, is followed by a double selection of the clusters, both in the vineyard and on the sorting table, ensuring the highest quality. Aging takes place for 21/24 months, half in Slavonian oak barrels of 30 hL and half in French oak barrels of 50 hL, giving the wine elegance and structure. This artisanal and tradition-respecting approach allows for the preservation of the organoleptic characteristics of the territory and the grape varieties.

The Chianti Classico Riserva Castello di Meleto has an intense ruby red color with reflections tending towards garnet with aging. On the nose, it reveals seductive scents of violet, cherry, and berries, enriched by spicy notes. In the mouth, it is round and velvety, with thick but soft tannins, and a persistent and intense finish. This wine pairs splendidly with traditional Tuscan first courses, such as pasta with meat ragù, but finds its perfect match with aged cheeses, such as pecorino. Thanks to the freshness conferred by the altitudes and the temperature variations of the hills of Gaiole in Chianti, and to the mineral savoriness of the rocky soils, this wine embodies the authenticity and elegance of Tuscan oenological tradition.
