Castello della Paneretta Chianti Classico is a beautiful red wine gem from this famous appellation of Tuscany. The Paneretta castle is situated in the Chianti Classico area on the western slopes of the dominating hills of the Elsa valley, looking towards San Gimignano. It was built around an ancient sighting tower. With its 309 hectares, the Paneretta is one of the biggest farms of the area.
"Vibrant, perfumed and light on its feet, as wines from the property tend to be. Red flowers, mint, pine, licorice, kirsch and hard candy give the 2016 an intensely aromatic profile to play off its mid-weight structure and bright acids. Readers should expect an especially floral/savory style. I find the 2016 a bit eccentric, but also compellingly beautiful."-Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 92 points! Drink 2020-2031.
