    Castellare di Castellina 2008 Chianti Classico 16 Drink 2010-2014 95% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo. Cask sample (13.5%?). Oenologist Alessandro Cellai and Maurizio Castelli. Medium crimson with lighter rim. Sweet, savoury cherry nose with a hint of oriental spice. Earthy too. Round, almost fleshy fruit palate (the fruit seems to be subdued, or toned down by something that is round and shows some MLF notes ie creaminess) and rustic stalky tannins. But retains good overall balance. Good length too. (WS)
