Chianti Classico is the heartland of the Chianti wine region - its traditional and longest-established viticultural area. The term classico is used in this way in several Italian wine regions although Chianti is the most famous example. The typical Chianti Classico wine is a ruby-red, Sangiovese-based wine with aromas of violets and cherries and a hint of earthy spice.

Wine SpectatorThis red combines pure Sangiovese flavors of cherry and berry with earthy, savory and wild herb notes, making for a complex mix. These elements are matched to a dense, tannic structure that some may find on the dry side, but this will come alive with food. It has a terrific finish--and it's still a youngster. Best from 2020 through 2033. 1,000 cases made.
