100% Sangiovese. The very best parcels of Castagnoli are matured in oak for 24 months. The name of the Riserva derives from the ancient Tuscan stone terraces that shape the visual of the vineyards and winery.
Intense, sanguine color with vibrant aromas of blood orange, rosemary, and black olive. Fresh acidity cutting through the robust tannin, and a smooth, sensual mouthfeel with breed and class.
"Mid to deep ruby. Richness and lift on the nose. Quite eye-catching. Supple and rich fruit cut through by lots of tangy acidity. Very long, dramatic and energetic." 17.5/20 (2017 vintage), Jancis Robinson
"Dark, deep Ruby. Cherry candy, strawberry cotton candy and cinamon on the nose. Meltingly elegant, juicy and clear with integrated acidity, impressive into the finish, independent." 92 points, Falstaff
"This has a wealth of ripe, red cherries, as well as spicy, earthy aromas. Dried cherries and red plums also show on the palate, which has plenty of sweet, mellow tannins. Some leather to close. Drink or hold." 91 points, James Suckling
