Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
The Chianti Classico has a vivid ruby color and robust aromas of fresh red fruit with hints of cherry. This is a well-structured wine with a fruity finish.
"A fresh, crisp red, lending a tightness to the feel and linear profile. With air, this turns richer, offering plum, coffee and leather notes. Assertive tannins mark the long finish. Decant now, or cellar."
"This distinctive Chianti Classico has a multifaceted bouquet of iris, crushed cherry and truffle along with accents of meat and balsamic herbs. It has a delicious wild cherry flavor, with a hint of orange zest. It’s already enjoyable thanks to its forward personality."
"Very intense purple-ruby color. Plum, blackcurrant and inky herbs on the nose. Suave and dense on the palate, with juicy flavors of small black forest berries offering excellent clarity and cut. The long finish shows a beautiful mouthwatering quality, with harmonious acids that really extend the flavor. One of the most successful Volpaia Chiantis in recent memory. Still, although I realize that Chianti allows up to 20% other grapes in the blend, I feel it's a shame to see sangiovese-based wines with this sort of deep purple hue."

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
