Castagna La Chiave Sangiovese 2015 - Beechworth
Bottle size: 750ml
Single vineyard – 100% Sangiovese – in the style of Brunello with a touch more fruit. A serious Sangiovese.
Castagna makes a stunning Sangiovese blend 'La Chiave' which in many years can rival the great examples from Tuscany in Italy. It is always a delicate wine of mesmerising perfume with the depth and structure to age for many years. The 2015 La Chiave we are offering today is stunning and comes highly recommended by our team.
The vineyard was planted in 1997 on what was previously grazing land. Five different clones of Syrah are grown, all of which are progeny of the original 1850s stock imported into Australia from the Rhone.
The land has been farmed biodynamic from the very beginning and it is this farming method that allows the minerality that is in this ancient granitic soil to show through in the wine.
Australia is indeed fortunate to have available such wonderful rare material.
Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)
In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.
The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").
Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.
For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.
Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes.
