Galloni's "In a Tuscan State of Mind"
Chianti Producer Castell'in Villa received glowing praise and high scores accordingly in the recent Antonio Galloni review on Tuscany. As well as trying the current vintage wines from this historic estate, Galloni also had the rare opportunity to do a vertical tasting of Chianti Classico Riservas and single vineyard wines going back to 1971. Half of these wines received scores of at least 94 points including the 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva, which is currently in stock.
" The 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva hits all the high notes. Ripe and structured, yet also wonderfully contained, the 2006 boasts stunning depth, power and richness. Readers will have to be patient, as the 2006 is also likely to require a considerable amount of time to come around. All the elements are in the right place for the 2006 Riserva to develop into a splendid wine. The mid-weight, firm style is classic Castell'in Villa."
The 2009 Chianti Classico also got a fantastically high score of 91 points and was described as "one of the most open, young wines I have ever tasted from Castell'in Villa."
