Merlot grown in Tuscany can be stunning, but the land is not always suitable for growing this varietal. Thanks to their high-altitude vineyards and limestone soils, Castellare di Castellina has been regarded as a benchmark for the expectations of quality Merlot in the region. With less than 4,000 bottles released, Castellare di Castellina’s Poggio ai Merli is one of the most sought-after pure Merlot Super Tuscans. This is a rich and succulent rendition with high notes of dried mint and graphite that hover over the bouquet with an almost suspended or lifted quality. Those pretty aromas set the stage for the dark and nicely concentrated fruit that you find directly underneath

Winemaker Notes

Alessandro Cellai

Castellare di Castellina

by Alessandro Cellai
The 2018 vintage has plenty of varietal character in the glass, but with a good kick of freshness from the moderate growing season. Sweet vanilla and oak notes mingle with pretty black cherry, plum and blackberry fruits in this deep and complex wine. The finish is long and intense, picking up mineral and spice accents on the lingering aftertaste
