Varietal: Sangiovese

Region: Chianti

Region Description:

Italy’s largest wine region extends through much of Tuscany. Chianti is divided into seven districts, all of which are DOCG status. These wines, made primarily from the Sangiovese grape, are often given the name of the district where the grapes are grown. Chianti Classico is the heartland of the zone, and the best area for wine. Chianti wines vary in style according to their aging: Riserva wines are quite often aged in French oak, and may be released only after two year or more at the winery. A very dry wine, it can range from light-bodied to almost full-bodied, with aromas of cherry and violet, and flavors reminiscent of tart cherries. The best Chiantis have very concentrated fruit character and usually taste best from five to eight hears after vintage. Another great wine from Chianti is Brunello di Montalcino, which comes from a particular strain of the Sangiovese grape.
