2006 Castagna La Chiave Sangiovese. Beechworth, VIC. 13.5%

IMG_1094

Has a very high toned aroma.

Sour cherries and plums and a small amount of Italian herbs.

Very fresh acids.

This has good structure that fills the mouth well.

A sound, well made wine that does not seem to have much soul.

Seemed too “clean” & less earthy when compared to Italian Sangiovese.

For the price, I was expecting more.

$75 direct from winery

Tasted 5th December 2012

Casual observations of a Perth wine enthusiast. I am a recently turned 40 husband to a wonderful wife and father to 3 fantastic children. When work and family are not occupying me, my thoughts frequently turn towards two of my other passions in life, wine and food.
