Castellare’s top wine, ranked in the Wine Spectator Top 100 on multiple occasions and recognised with the prestigious “tre bicchieri” (three glasses) and “cinque grappoli” (five bunches of grapes) ratings. The company takes great pride in demonstrating the greatness of the Sangiovese variety, paired with Malvasia Nera, achieving a worldwide position of fifth place.


Tasting notes: intense red with hints of garnet. Deeply sophisticated and showcasing its full pedigree in terms of both the bouquet and palate of the wine.
