Tasting Notes

"Castello della Paneretta's 2016 Chianti Classico is vibrant, perfumed and light on its feet, as wines from the property tend to be. Red flowers, mint, pine, licorice, kirsch and hard candy give the 2016 an intensely aromatic profile to play off its mid-weight structure and bright acids. Readers should expect an especially floral/savory style. I find the 2016 a bit eccentric, but also compellingly beautiful."

The Producer

Castello della Paneretta

The Castello della Paneretta winery is situated in the Chianti Classico area on the western slopes of the Elsa valley, looking towards San Gimignano. In 1577 Ludovico Capponi restored the castle and commissioned Bernardino Poccetti, important painter, to fresco the loggia of the court. Production of wine is documented from 1596. Today the tradition is preserved exclusively growing tuscan grape varieties used to produce high quality wines.
