Your rating for Rocca di Castagnoli Chianti Classico 375ml 2016:Rate Rocca di Castagnoli Chianti Classico 375ml 2016:

4 /5

A wine of excellent complexity and structure. The colour is intense ruby-red with purple reflections. The wine has an intense bouquet, rich in fruity and winy hints and a captivating balsamic note. The period in wood gives a notable balance to the wine and silky, smooth tannins on the palate. Sweet spice and cherry notes are the highlights here, accented by milk chocolate and tobacco hints. This is fruity enough to stand up to the dusty tannins on the finish.
