Winemaker's Notes

Made from 100% Sangiovese grapes. The grapes were crushed and macerated in contact with the skins for 7 days. After fermentation was complete, the wine was transferred to stainless steel tanks and barriques for 18 months.

Sweet sensations of berry and toasted oak are matched by aromas of ripe cherry and violet. Fruit, tannin and alcohol achieve an elegant balance that carries through to the lingering finish.

Chianti is the quintessential match for the earthy, rustic quality of traditional Tuscan cooking. Pairs well with bean dishes, pastas and roasted meats.

This wine has a complex yet slightly weak flavor with heavy mineral overtones. If you want a sangiovese with a real taste of Italian earth, this is the one to pick. Quite unique.

The wine provides an excellent flavor balance, with the light earthy overtones of a true Chianti. Very soft and smooth drinking wine, which would work for any occasion, especially with its small price tag.

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...
