Castellare Chianti Classico 2006

iconUntil I can offer wine here that I have sourced myself, I thought it would be interesting to see what was available from the various affiliate programs I belong too. Here is a Chianti Classico I can heartily recommend, the Castellare Chianti Classico 2006.
icon I was down there a couple of weeks ago to buy some of this, and the 2006 is all gone (as is the 2007 - I ended up with 6 bottles of the 2008). To get this wine now in the U.S., at this price ($21.99) is quite a deal. That is just a couple of dollars more than what you can get it for here in Italy.

Here is a datasheet (PDF) for this wine from the producer, but I think it is woefully out of date. This is exactly the kind of wine I am hoping to present myself eventually, outside of the size of the production (that being said, this is a fine, handcrafted wine from a very reputable producer in an esteemed region - but they are just too big and established for us to ever hope to work with directly).

I have had this vintage however and highly recommend it - I don't have tasting notes but what is on the wine.com site is pretty accurate - it was a pleasant surprise to find this wine there.
