Castello di Verrazzano Chianti Classico Riserva Sassello 2012




Verrazzano’s modern-day claim to fame stems from its wines. Wine authority Burton Anderson named it one of a select few estates forming ”the foundation on which Chianti’s renewed prestige has been built.” One hundred and five acres of vines thrive in its limestone-rich soil. Though present in southern areas of Chianti Classico, limestone is unique to Verrazzano in the cooler, northern sector, accounting for the singular blend of muscularity and finesse evident in Verrazzano wines. Deep ruby, leading to garnet with age Bouquet – Saturated, richly perfumed, heady scent of cherries, blackberries, raspberries against backdrop of spice and vanilla Taste – Rich, concentrated and full-bodied, with tight-knit tannins and an a pleasant, lingering finish of spice and ripe fruit.
