Attractive meaty, earthy and cherry driven nose. Palate has flavours of red cherries and a hint of cola. Elegant well balanced palate, medium plus in weight. Dry tannic long finish. Lovely wine, how can one not like a wine made from a blend of La Chiave and Genesis? 60% Sangiovese and 40% Syrah.
Castagna Un Segreto 2017, Beechworth, Victoria
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
