    Winemaker Notes

    Spicy, medium-bodied Chianti with classic dried Tuscan cherry, cracked pepper and intense floral aromas reminiscent of rosewater and violets. Well structured with a focused and persistent finish.

    All of the grapes are hand picked from estate vineyards grown on limestone and clay soils. Each vine is selectively picked more than once to ensure the all of the grapes are optimally ripened. The vineyards are all situated around the Sonnino castle and have South and South East exposure.

    85% Sangiovese, 10% Canaiolo, 5% Trebbiano and Malvasia

    Will pair well with Rosemary-infused white beans with grilled pork chops, polenta casserole, pasta in tomato sauce and gourmet pizzas.

    Bootleg, Italy
    Bootleg Winery Image
    Italy is arguably the most renowned wine producing country in the world. For centuries wine has been a staple of Italian life and an accompaniment to great food, celebrations, families and friends. Italian wine estates are blessed with some of the best terroir in the world and centuries of vineyard knowledge that allows them to craft some of the world’s greatest wines year after year.

    The estates that produce the Bootleg Collection feel strongly that for too long Italian wines have communicated a historic, romantic, and conservative image of Italy. They are excited that the Collection gives each of them a chance to craft a single, exceptional wine from their respective estates, which represents Italy as they each see her today: sexy, innovative, and modern.

    Famous for its food-friendly, approachable red wines and their storied history, Chianti is perhaps the best-known wine region of Italy. This appellation within Tuscany has it all: sweeping views of rolling hills, endless vineyards, the warm Mediterranean sun, hearty cuisine and a rich artistic heritage. Chianti includes seven subzones: Chianti Colli Fiorentini, Rufina, Montalbano, Colli Senesi, Colline Pisane, Colli Aretini and Montespertoli, with area beyond whose wines can be labeled simply as Chianti.

    However the best quality comes from Chianti Classico, in the heart of the Chianti zone, which is no longer a subzone of the region at all but has been recognized on its own since 1996. The Classico region today is delimited by the confines of the original Chianti zone protected since the 1700s.

    Chianti wines are made primarily of Sangiovese, with other varieties comprising up to 25-30% of the blend. Generally, local varieties are used, including Canaiolo, Colorino and Mammolo, but international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah are allowed as long as they are grown within the same zone.

    Basic, value-driven Chianti wine is simple and fruit-forward and makes a great companion to any casual dinner. At its apex, Chianti is full bodied but with good acidity, firm tannins, and notes of tart red fruit, dried herbs, fennel, balsamic and tobacco. Chianti Riserva, typically the top bottling of a producer, can benefit handsomely from a decade or two of cellaring.

    Among Italy's elite red grape varieties, Sangiovese has the perfect intersection of bright red fruit and savory earthiness and is responsible for the best red wines of Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of Chianti, it is also the main grape in Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di Montalcino. Somm Secret—Sangiovese doubles under the alias, Nielluccio, on the French island of Corsica where it produces distinctly floral and refreshing reds and rosés.
