In stock
Italy / 750ML
2015 Vintage;
Intense ruby red in colour. Black nuts, vanilla, and spices on the nose. Elegant and velvety tannins ensure a long, persistent and enveloping finish.

Casalferro was first produced in 1993 when Francesco Ricasoli became president of the company. A pure Merlot produced only during the best years, Casalferro is obtained from the vineyard of the same name located at 400 meters above sea level and facing south. The brown clay loam soil with little organic content contributes to the exclusive personality of this great Chianti Merlot.

Blackberries, blackcurrants, dark plums, Chinese spices and hints of vanilla. Full body, incredibly structured tannins, plenty of juicy blue fruit and a long finish. It's all so balanced and refined yet muscular. Better in 2020.
Decanter - 94 Points

Spicy oak with red fruit, blueberry and cherry aromas. The palate is gently smoky with fine tannin and a chalky minerality.

Wine Spectator - 93 Points
This is pure and silky, boasting cherry, raspberry, peony and spice flavors. Intense and harmonious, picking up accents of chocolate, tobacco and mineral on the lingering finish. Merlot. Drink now through 2024.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 92 Points
A pure expression of Merlot, the 2015 Casalferro is a velvety and deeply enriched red wine. The magical forces of sunny Tuscany and exuberant Merlot are combined here to produce a wine of intensity and sweet softness. It caresses the palate, thanks to the softness and the succulent nature of its texture. The warm 2015 vintage also leaves its mark in terms of concentration and richness.
