6 Sangiovese Superstars
Chianti is probably the last true vestige of value for fine wine in the world. Sangiovese is the variety in question. Italy's most planted grape, it's vibrant acidity and dusty drying tannins make it an ideal food match and it sends any pasta dish to the next level. Starting just outside the CC area: Casamatta Rosso is classic Sangio. San Vito Organic Chianti is a juicy entry point from outside the Classico area. We have five different Chianti Classicos to showcase 3 of our favourite Classico villages: Carleone CC from Radda, Felsina CC 2017 & Poggio Bonelli Chianti Classico 2016 from Castelnuovo Berardenga and Fattori Fontodi also from 2017 is from Greve. Isole e Olena Chianti Classico is from the King of Chianti, Paolo di Marchi. Liver and fava beans optional.
Chianti Classico is one of the last games in town for value, terroir driven fine wine. STSWine
