This outstanding Chianti Classico comes from the historic Castello di Meleto, which dates from 1256. It is just two miles down the road from the famous, 10th century church Pieve di Spaltenna (depicted on the label), which happens to be surrounded by some very special Sangiovese vines. Winemaking duo Matteo Menicacci and Emiliano Falsini (no strangers to international acclaim) headed there to make this fine Chianti Classico, hand harvesting only the best grapes, then carefully ageing the wine for a year in top quality oak barrels. The wine positively bursts with juicy red berries alongside hints of white pepper and toasty oak. It's incredibly food-friendly and a magnum will make an impressive centrepiece for your next Italian feast.
