Style: Smooth & Supple

Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Select parcels of fruit from the low-yielding Poggiotondo estate vineyards render a ripe, complex Chianti. Extended time on skins and maturation in seasoned French oak delivers concentrated black fruits and elegant spices, velvet tannins, enviable balance and ample structure for aging.

Critical Acclaim

"A polished, fruit-filled red, drenched in violet, blackberry, black cherry and sweet spice flavors. Balanced and intense, with a lively, firmly structured finish."
90 Points

"Deep ruby-red. Enticing nose offers dark berry syrup, sweet spices and minerals. Then fleshy and creamy in the mouth, with bright red and black cherry flavors accented by spices on the long, smooth finish.

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...
