Castellare di Castellina

flagCentral Italy / Italy

A super rich Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2009 Coniale mirrors the same themes of elegance and abundance seen in the other wines from Castellare di Castellina. Black fruit, leather and spice add muscle and staying power. Despite the wine’s massive power and concentration, it also reveals unmistakable finesse in the way its various elements are so seamlessly integrated. Tiny details of tar, black licorice and rosemary sprig add to its overall complexity and give it an all-Italian personality. The aging potential is great. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2033. ||When publisher Paolo Panerai set out to buy a wine estate in the late 1970s he had the great foresight and intuition to purchase Castellare di Castellina. He selected a property with a proven track record and enormous untapped potential. Over the decades and under his steady leadership, Castellare earned an unquestionable reputation for consistency and excellence. Winemaker Alessandro Cellai, with the estate since 1997, plays a pivotal role in guaranteeing that status. Castellare di Castellina is one of the great estates of Tuscany. Wine Advocate.August, 2013
