Winemaker's Notes

Deep ruby red, with light burgundy reflections. Full and intense, with notes of small wild berries and pleasing scents of noble wood, vanilla and cocoa. Dry, well structured, austere and elegant; good harmony between the tannic and acid components and those responsible for softness; excellent persistence on the palate.

A wine for the whole meal, particularly suitable for serving with pasta and rice, all meat dishes and cheese that is not too ripe.

Critical Acclaim

"This is vibrant and energetic, with a base of fine-grained tannins lifting the cherry, currant, rhubarb and tobacco flavors. Taut and almost racy on the long finish."

One of the stars from Tuscany, the 2010 Borgo Scopeto Chianti Classico offers ripe fruit and kind of strawberry-like note to it. Textured and delicate on the palate; nice persistence in the aftertaste.

Style: Smooth & Supple
Really 4.5 stars. Well made and very reasonably priced. Vibrant red with red cherry, raspberry flavors. Tannins are prominent but smooth and add length to the finish which is framed by hints of mint and anise.Very versatile food wine.

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
