Merlot Poggio ai Merli
Price per bottle 0,75l
Poderi Castellare di Castellina is a company of about 80 hectares in the heart of the Chianti Classico area, close to the village of Castellina in Chianti. The hectares of vineyard are almost 33, located on the hills of a natural amphitheatre facing southeast. The production is of about 250.000 bottles of wine per year. To a middle altitude of 370 m. above sea level the vineyards have an age between 5 and 30 years. Castellare di Castellina was born in 1968 from the consolidation of five farms. A good exposure to the sun, a good drain of the water, a mixed ground of calcareous marls, galestro and little clay give wines both red and white, which are very well structured, intense and proper for a long ageing in bottle.
Tuscany has demonstrated to be a fantastic land for Merlot vines, with renowned wines all over the world like Masseto. This Merlot made in Castellare, thanks to the strategic position of the vines, has a unique character you may find only in the best International Merlot wines.
