2 x 2016 Castellare: Tasting notes: Bright ruby red colour with purple highlights. Thanks to the harmony of the tannins, combined with the delicate complexity of aromas and the final note of sweetness, the wine is characterised by an excellent balance in the mouth.
2 x 2014 Borgo Salcetino: Perfect for young and medium bodied red wines which don't require excessive oxygenation to open. The opening slightly tight than the body of the glass favors the concentration of aromas towards the nose, enhancing the perception of aromas and limiting the dispersion. Balanced, full, we feel the fruit, velvety tannins and persistent
2 x 2013 Rocca di Castagnoli: A juicy and savoury Italian red wine from the heart of Tuscany, with full-bodied richness on the palate. Dark berries with a smoky finish. This sangiovese-based wine finishes with dried herbs. Try it with pasta in a meat sauce tonight.

The Chianti Classico seal, recently changed in 2013, is a black rooster (Gallo Nero in Italian) on a white background with a bordeaux colored frame. Legend has it that in 13th century Florence and Siena decided to use a horse race to end their land dispute over Chianti. The meeting point of two knights, who had left respectively from Florence and Siena when the rooster sang at dawn, would mark the new borders of their territories. The Florentines selected a black rooster and kept it for a few days in a box with no food. On the day of the race, when they took the rooster out of the box, he sang much earlier than dawn. Thus the Florentine knight left before the Sienese rider, meeting him only him only 20 km from Siena walls. Since then the black rooster has been the symbol of Chianti: first of the Chianti League in 13th century and then of the Chianti Classico Consortium.
