Wine Style Guide
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.
Deep ruby. Rich, complex aromas of ripe fruit (plums and wild cherries), violets and hints of cloves and tobacco. Elegant structure and ripe, well-integrated tannins.
"Bright, deep red. Higher-toned and more floral on the nose than the Rennina, showing pungent red cherry, marzipan, gingerbread and Asian spice aromas. Concentrated and penetrating in the mouth, boasting a more chiseled texture and more lift than the Rennina but still wonderfully ripe, dense and silky in the style of 2007. Finishes with very sweet, lush tannins and excellent structure and nerve for a graceful evolution in bottle.
International Wine Cellar
"Bold and elegant at the same time. Packs a powerful punch in a silk glove. Intense aromas of ripe fruit, spice, cherry liqueur, cola, dried sage and cigar box. The mouthfeel is pristine and structured, with a precise, tonic and streamlined impact."

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...
