Winemaker's Notes

"Here's a real steal: a clean, direct, modern Chianti Classico that still feels like an Etruscan beauty..."
-Wines & Spirits

Full and intense, with notes of small wild berries and pleasing scents of noble wood, vanilla and cocoa. On the palate, dry, well structured, austere and elegant; good harmony between the tannic and acid components and those responsible for softness (alcohol and glycerine); excellent persistence on the palate.

This is a wine for the whole meal, particularly suitable for serving with pasta and rice, all meat dishes and cheese.

I just love this wine. I just had it with pizza and it was wonderful. Chianti is one of my faves. We make pizza a lot and we always have Chianti. This bottle was great.

Borgo Scarpeto is an old and well-established estate producer of Chianti Classico and is a true borgo - a hamlet with its own church, post office, town center and residences. Elizabetta Gnudi owns Borgo Scopeto, and she and winemaker Simone Giunti are responsible for all aspects of the production of Borgo Scopeto wines.

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...
