PV Tasting Notes
Deep crimson with black/purple tones, this is from a strong vintage, we skipped the 2004 and 5 in preference to this, stemming from 50 year old vines, lovely balanced, with ripe blackberry, floral and dark chocolate tones, medium to full bodied, ripe tannins balanced on the finish. Another great quality drinking wine representing real value. Drink through 2018.
Interestingly the 2007 vintage, which I felt was slightly weaker has been awarded 90 Points on Robert Parker's Website.
Serve this with Prosciutto, or Gourmet pork sausages with lots of herbs, Pizza is a given and would suit Saltimbocca alla Romana, Lasagna, or virtually any pasta dishe with a meat sauce, Farfalle Carbonara with vegetables and grilled Quail with sour cherris and toasted walnuts.
Run by the dynamic & enthusiastic Filippo Rocchi & his sister Stefania, Castelvecchio is situated in San Casciano Val di Pesa, in the area that produces Chianti Colli Fiorentini, among the most dynamic denominations of Chianti. 32 hectares of the estate is cultivated with grapes. The condition of the soil is Pliocene in origin. It is characterized mainly by a kind of pebbly limestone rich in marl, and by sandstone, which offer a good agronomic fertility and basic freshness.
