Castello di Cacchiano Chianti Classico 750ml 2006     
Sku: 1795468*

Castello di Cacchiano is located in the Chianti Classico, in the commune of Gaiole in Chianti, near the village of Monti. Founded in the 10th century by the Baron Ricasoli-Firodolfi, the fruit was always sold - that is until 1974 when Baron Alberto Ricasoli-Firodolfi and his wife Elisabetta Balbi Valier began producing wine under their own label, Castello di Cacchiano. The current owner, Giovanni Ricasoli- Firidolfi, is also the winemaker. 77 acres of vineyards are planted at an altitude of 1,247-1,312 feet on calcareous clay, crumbled limestone and sandstone. The estate is primarily planted with Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Colorino, Malvasia and Merlot.

Tasting notes
A medium-bodied wine that offers notes of Morello cherry, licorice, cedar and fine grained tannins.

 Wine Spectator 88 points (Aug 31 2013)
A sinewy red, with cherry, currant, cedar, tobacco and underbrush flavors, backed by dense tannins. A very structured red that needs time. 600 cases imported. –BS
