Castelvecchio, ‘Santa Caterina’ Chianti 2018
“The Chianti ‘Santa Caterina’ shows a ruby red colour with purple highlights. The nose is complex with notes of violets and cherries well integrated with hints of spice. The palate is soft and enveloping with velvety tannins, and the finish and aftertaste are long and savoury”. – Producer
In 1960 Castelvecchio was bought and renovated by Renzo Rocchi, giving it an elegant appearance of a dignified residence. The cellars were built and the vineyards planted, all beginning with a passion and love of the countryside. The property evokes memories from the mid- twelfth century, in pure Romanesque style. The stone emblem placed on the facade accompanies the company logo which has been around for many years.
