More about this wine from Tuscany, Italy
The standards of producing Chianti are almost as rigorous as Champagne. Wine can only be considered Chianti if it comes from the Chianti region within Tuscany. The Italians also have strict regulations about what grapes can go into these wines. While blends are permitted, 80 percent of the wine has to consist of Tuscany’s star grape, Sangiovese. The rest of the blend is up to the discretion of the winemaker but the varietals typically used are Canaiolo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, or Syrah. Chianti is an iconic wine, and what’s even cooler is, just like rosé, you don’t have to spend top dollar to find quality juice.

This wine feels like wrapping your cold shoulders up in a ruby red blanket while you are sitting under the starry night sky. It's not yet summer but you can taste it in the promising breeze. On the palate, you’ll find raspberries and brilliant red fruit that almost feels alive. Juicy plums intertwined in violets. A medium body that is ever so lush caresses the palate with easygoing tannins. This is a beautiful wine with pizza and pasta.
