#41 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012
The Tuscan classic. Chianti wines originated in the 13th century, but there's nothing old-fashioned about the contemporary taste of Folonari Chianti.
This 100% Sangiovese is a wine vinified in stainless steel to emphasize fresh, crisp flavors of these grapes. A Tuscan treasure and 100% Italian, this DOCG wine is made using grapes sourced from Italy's most well-known wine producing area, the Chianti region. With juicy flavors and fragrant aromas, this wine is fresh, fruity, full and harmonious, with blackberry and raspberry notes and toasted almond notes on the finish.
Pair with: Veal, pork, pizza, pasta with meat sauce, chicken

Fantastic wine for the price. A great wine for everyday drinking. A little bit light for a Chianti, but plenty of fruit.
