Review: 2016 Castello Trebbio Chianti Superiore DOCG
Imported to the U.S. by Sonoma’s Cline family, Castello Trebbio is the center of a 350-hectare, organic winemaking operation that includes this Chianti Superiore. Soft for Chianti, the wine offers a significant graphite note, atop a dark but quite dry cherry base. Slightly tart, with notes of black pepper and some vague, dried spice notes, it’s a perfectly approachable table wine for pizza night.
85% sangiovese and 15% a blend of canaiolo and cliegiolo.
