We have added the following products to your shopping cart from a previous visit:
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
We use only native vines, without Cabernet and Merlot, to maintain the typical formula of the famous italian wines. Without following the fashion, using even South wines, our grapes make the beautiful ruby red of Sangioveto red and black. A wine that wants to reach, with its uniqueness, the maximum elegance.
"The 2009 Chianti Classico opens with sweet, refined aromatics that lead to succulent red cherries, flowers, spices, mint and hard candy, all of which come together beautifully in this radiant, seductive wine. The 2009 is a touch silkier and more polished than the 2008 tasted alongside it, but both are beautiful. A long, creamy finish adds to an impression of amplitude on the palate. The 2009 should drink well for another decade, perhaps more. A small percentage of Canaiolo (5%) is added to the Sangiovese. The wine is fermented in steel and aged in neutral French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021. "

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.

Sangiovese re...Read More About Sangiovese
