Castagna 2015 La Chiave (Sangiovese)

“…is possibly the best Australian sangiovese I’ve tasted This is an extraordinary wine…(with) all the signs of greatness.  It has all the attributes of high-quality Sangiovese … very seductive.”  Winewise



Time in barrel has mellowed this wine considerably, taking its time in the glass to reveal sangiovese’s short-twitch muscle of edgy tannin and sappy acidity. Plenty of nerve, too. Red fruit allusions shimmer around a kernel of exotic herb and spice, from cardamom, anise and clove. Sapid of flavour, beguiling of texture and long. This is a mellow sleeper needing air to awaken.” Ned Goodwin
