budget friendly estate bottled italy organic sustainably farmed

Casaloste Chianti Classico DOCG 2017

Estate: Dedicated to sustainable and organic viticulture, Giovanni Battista d’Orsi, along with his wife Emilia, established Casaloste in 1994. Located in the Panzano hills of the Chianti Classico region, the certified organic estate operates “off the grid”. They produce all of their energy needs through solar photovoltaic system and biothermal renewable plant fuels.

Casaloste, together with the other wine producers of Unione Viticoltori di Panzano has strongly supported and financed The Experimental Station for Sustainable Viticulture (Stazione Sperimentale per la Viticoltura Sostenibile- SPEVIS). The institution focuses on finding environmentally friendly solutions for winemakers.

Winemaking: Aged in French oak barrels of 25 and 35 liters and in barriques “for a period of about 12 months”.

Tasting Notes: Transparent garnet in colour, with aromas of black cherry, strawberry, wisp of roasted chestnut and black pepper. Tangy acidity and firm tannins frame silky layers of black cherry, blackberry, cherry, roasted herbs and a trace of rose petal. Cranberry, raspberry and toasted spice linger on the earthy, mineral driven finish. Gorgeously balanced, silky and genteel.
