Winemaker Notes

Ruby red in color with garnet reflections that increase with aging. The aromas are intense and persistent with floral hints of red fruits and spices. The wine has a remarkable texture and the taste is expressive, balanced, harmonious, very elegant, full-bodied and tannic that will evolve to become velvety with the progress of aging.

Blend: 95% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot

JS 94
James Suckling
Lots of spices and dried mushroom, with dark fruits on the nose. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and raisins as well as sultanas. Lots going on. Delicious and stylish wine. Drink now.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Offers currant and blackberry, with hints of flowers and light toasty oak. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, caressing finish. Well-crafted. Best after 2010. 2,915 cases made.

San Fabiano Cacchiano, Chianti Classico, Chianti, Tuscany, Italy
Guido Serio and his wife Isa arrived at San Fabiano in 1983 and immediately made investments aimed at producing quality wines. They have gradually made progress over the time, renewing the vineyards, the wine-making chain, the bottling and the cellar for refining the wine in wooden barrels.

San Fabiano Calcinaia produces wines appreciated all over the world: Chianti Classico vintage, Chianti Classico Riserva "Cellole," Cerviolo Rosso Igt, Cabernet sauvignon Igt, Casa Boschino Igt, Cerviolo Bianco, a small production of the traditional Vin Santo of Chianti Classico, and of Grappa of Chianti Classico "Cellole," as well as, of course, the perfumed and fragrant extra virgin olive oil.

Sangiovese

View all wine

The perfect intersection of bright red fruit and savory earthiness, Sangiovese is the king of the best red wines in 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

Elsewhere throughout Italy, Sangiovese plays an important role in many easy-drinking, value-driven red blends and on the French island of Corsica, under the name Nielluccio, it produces excellent bright and refreshing red and rosé wines with a personality of their own. Sangiovese has also enjoyed success growing in California and Washington.

In the Glass

Sangiovese is a medium-bodied red with qualities of tart cherry, plum, sun dried tomato, fresh tobacco and herbs. High-quality, well-aged examples can take on tertiary notes of smoke, leather, game, potpourri and dried fruit. Corsican Nielluccio is distinguished by a subtle perfume of dried flowers.

Perfect Pairings

Sangiovese is the ultimate pizza and pasta red—its high acidity, moderate alcohol, and fine-grained tannins create a perfect symbiosis with tomato-based dishes, braised vegetables, roasted and cured meat, hard cheese and anything off the barbecue.

Sommelier Secret

Although it is the star variety of Tuscany, cult-classic “Super-Tuscan” wines may actually contain no Sangiovese at all! Since the 1970s, local winemakers have been producing big, bold wines as a blend of one or more of several international varieties—usually Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot or Syrah—with or without Sangiovese.
