Winemaker's Notes

The Berardenga district, in southeast Chianti Classico, is mirrored in the Chianti Classico Berardenga, a monovarietal Sangiovese. The grapes are sourced as well from the vineyards of the Paglierese wine estate on the northwest border of Felsina, where the average vineyard age is over 30 years.

Critical Acclaim

"Lavender and blackberry aromas follow through to a medium-to-full body, with a solid core of fruit and a tangy aftertaste of citrus fruit and dried cherry. Best after 2009."

Just great - classicly styled, from a traditional producer. Will age beautifully. One of the best producers of Chianti Classico in Italy. Give it some to to "breathe" and open up once you pop the cork.

Tasted a little young and harsh for the way the employee at local wine market described it as one of the best sangiovese wines for the price. For the $22, I wonder if I could have found something better. fyi, it is not BAD, I think I just expected more.

With great anticipation that I was about to partake of a 2008 Wine Spectator Top 100 wine, I was somewhat taken aback by the simple, wine-stained label and the "Imported by Southern Wine Distributors" as the only textual information. It was straight downhill from there. While the aroma was vaguely floral, the taste was faded and monotone. It tasted like a wine too young to drink, which is an endnote in the WS review (best after 2009). Again I am struck that sangiovese, like merlot, offers few good wines for under $20. One can get a mediocre sangiovese for much less.

Learn About Sangiovese

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...
