Purchased by their father, Ivo, the winery is currently owned and operated by the three Cassini brothers; Danilo, Franco and Giancarlo. The land sits in the heart of Tuscany in the historical town, Gaiole. The Cassini brothers are Chianti; classic, sturdy and getting better every year. They and their wines are indistinguishable.
This wine gives delicious aromas of red berries, violets and cooking spice. The palate is bright with notes of black raspberry, red cherries and star anise. The tannin and fresh acidity make this an excellent food wine.
Pair it With:
High acid wines go great with high acid foods. We would enjoy this with most anything with a tomato based sauce; think spaghetti and meatballs or lasagnas.
