Chianti Classico 2020


The Chianti Classico Casaloste was produced for the first time with the vintage 1993 and since then has always respected the character of the younger Sangiovese, made elegant by the small note of Merlot. A wine that expresses the genuineness of the Tuscan conviviality, with lively but very pleasant tannins. The wine bears the original name of the stone tower, where the owners still live with their family: the name "Casaloste" has ancient origins that are lost in the past, when the building was used as a sighting tower.
