Castel'In Villa Chianti Classico Riserva 1971

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): ...very pretty. Sweet dried cherries, earthiness, flowers, mint and tobacco are some of the nuances that are woven together... The 1971 is fully mature in its aromas and flavors, but there is enough Sangiovese acidity to allow it to drink well for at least another handful of years. Hints of autumn leaves and crushed flowers linger on the Pinot-like finish. This is a great showing from the first Riserva ever made at Castell-in Villa. It is a gorgeous wine... 2012-2021. (Jun 2012)
