    Winemaker Notes

    Vignole Chianti Classico DOCG has a deep red color, and the nose bursts through with intense wild berries, gladiolas and violets. It is full bodied and warm. The palate follows the aromas, with supple and well integrated tannins. It has a long, satisfying finish.

    Vignole Chianti Classico is a perfect accompaniment to game, roasted red meats and mature cheeses. The wine benefits from being opened a few hours before serving.

    Blend: 85% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot

    Vignole
    Vignole farm is situated in the heart of Chianti Classico, in proximity of the town of Panzano. The Nistri family, who has worked in the wine sector since 1865, acquired the property in 1970. The vineryard covers 51 acres. The vineyards are situated along the river Pesa, better known in the Panzane zone as "the Conca d' Oro", because of the high quality wines that come from here. The altitude varies between 950 –1050 feet above sea level and the vineyards get long sun exposure to the south-east and south-west.

    A picturesque Mediterranean nation with a rich wine culture dating back to ancient times, Greece has so much more to offer than just retsina. Between the mainland and the country’s many islands, a wealth of wine styles exist, made mostly from Greece’s plentiful indigenous varieties. Still suffering for centuries after Ottoman rule, the modern wine industry did not truly begin here until the late 20th century, after a mass influx of newly trained winemakers and investments in winemaking technology. The climate—generally hot Mediterranean—can vary a bit with latitude and elevation, and is often moderated by cool maritime breezes. Drought can be an issue during the long, dry summers, often necessitating irrigation.

    Over 300 indigenous grapes have been identified throughout Greece, and though not all of them are suitable for wine production, future decades will likely see a significant revival of many of these native varieties. Assyrtiko, the crisp, saline variety of the island of Santorini, is one of the most important and popular white varieties, alongside Roditis, Robola, Moschofilero, and Malagousia. Muscat is also widely grown for both sweet and dry wines. Prominent red varieties include soft and fruity Agiorghitiko, native to Nemea; Macedonia’s savory, tannic Xinomavro; and Mavrodaphne, used commonly to produce a Port-like fortified wine in the Peloponnese.

    Assyrtiko

    View all wine

    A crisp white variety full of zippy acidity and a striking mineral character, Assyrtiko comes from the volcanic Greek island of Santorini, but is grown increasingly widely throughout the country today. The reasons for its popularity are plentiful: it retains its acid and mineral profile in a hot climate, blends well with other grapes and can also withstand some age. Flavors often found in Assyrtiko and its blends include lemon zest, passion fruit, pineapple, flint and fennel. It is versatile when matched with food; try it with oysters, shrimp, salmon as well as grilled chicken, tomatoes and asparagus.
