Winemaker Notes

Ruby red, tending to garnet with aging. Vinous bouquet, rich floral bouquet. The scent of violet must is a characteristic and specific element of the Chianti Classico. Harmonic taste, dry, sapid, slightly tannic, which is refined over time.

Gancia Winery Video

In 1850, the Gancia family founded their winery surrounded by beautiful vineyards in Canelli, Piedmont. It was there that Carlo Gancia produced the first Italian sparkling wine, applying the techniques he had learned in Champagne, France. By 1870, Gancia sparkling wine was well-established and became an official supplier to the Royal House of Savoy. A distinctive feature of the winery is the cellars--also called Underground Cathedrals for their incredibly beautiful architecture. Dug out of tufo soil, they maintain the cool steady temperatures perfect for making and storing wine. 

It is said of Gancia, "Born in Italy, before Italy." The House of Gancia has existed before the country of Italy was formed and has grown over the past 170 years to become one of the most well-known and respected brands in Italy. Gancia sparkling wines are such a common part of family celebrations in Italy that the brand has come to symbolize the beauty and tradition of the Italian family. 

Today, Gancia creates exceptional sparkling wines, vermouths, and liqueurs. Gancia is respected worldwide, having won multiple awards in Italy and beyond for their exceptional products.

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.
