Winemaker's Notes

#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

Critical Acclaim

"Vibrant and rich, this harmonious red offers cherry, strawberry and floral notes. Picks up some of the typical underbrush and tobacco accents on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2018. Best Buy."

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

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...
