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.
The 2015 Riserva pours a ruby red color. The first scents and flavors are of sweet licorice, tobacco and red fruits. The balance of acid and tannin is absolutely beautiful and the time spent in oak wraps the wine in hints of soft vanilla.
Pair it With:
This wine is perfect for serving with roasts and game. High acid wines also go great with high acid foods. We would enjoy this with almost anything with a tomato based sauce.
