Wine Advocate, 92 Points 

"A release of 7,500 bottles, the Podere Il Castellaccio 2018 Valénte is a blend of Sangiovese, Foglia Tonda and Pugnitello—all important native grapes found in Tuscany. This creative blend of fruit delivers balanced results and a bouquet that is layered tall with red and purple fruits, spice, tar and a touch of mint or medicinal herb. The wine is fresh and bright with an especially buoyant personality. This is a mid-weight wine that you could easily pair with Tuscan fried pasta, such as coccoli or donzelle, thanks to that fresh acidity." 

James Suckling, 92 Points 

"An attractive red with berries, orange peel and hints of vanilla. Medium body, medium fine tannins and a focused finish. Drink now."  

Winemaker Notes: 

"Dark, luminous ruby red colour predominant aromas include refined spices, sour cherry and blackcurrants, balsamic notes, vanilla and resinated aromas of mediterranean pine; a highly classical expression of a native tuscan wine. On the palate the tannin is dense and elegant, and heading towards a soft, velvety feel. to bring out the best in the wine, match with local products, such as cheeses, cured meats, pasta with meat sauce or grilled meats."  

Alcohol: 13.5%
