With this harvest, it was finally possible for the Sangiovese to express its maximum potential. Intense ruby color with garnet tinges, it has a beautiful aromatic complex bouquet. Chocolate/coffee and spices palate, it possesses elegant tannin content and a lingering finish.
Chianti Classico is especially perfect as a compliment to meat-based main courses, such as porchetta allo spiedo, tripe, bistecca alla fiorentina, Colonnata lard, cold cuts and finocchiona di cinta senese. Chianti Classico also goes well with semi-mature Pecorino Toscano cheese, crostini alla toscana and fagioli al fiasco. The wine should be served at a temperature of 60-65°F.
"Inky and raw, but in the best way. This is an unbridled, unchained monster of a Chianti, one with impeccable depth and extraction but also one that doesn’t sit on your palate like dead weight. Racy acids and firm tannins work in tandem to prop up the bulky dark fruit, creating a structured, delicious mass. Drink from 2007 through 2015."
"A powerful and rich red, with blackberry, milk chocolate and cherry character. Full and soft. Best from 2011 through 2016."
"The 2007 Chianti Classico Castello di Brolio offers up rich, textured dark fruit in a succulent style that is very appealing. French oak gives the Castello di Brolio notable volume and body, in addition to an attractive smokiness that works quite nicely in this vintage. The Castello di Brolio can be enjoyed today for its forward fruit or cellared for another decade or so. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020."

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...Read More About Sangiovese
