Where It's From

Appellation / Chianti

View more wines from Chianti

The Chianti region in central Tuscany produces the internationally-famous red wine of the same name. With a long history, the wines of Chianti have evolved through the years. At one point, Chianti was typically a blend of Sangiovese (the primary red grape used in the region) and several other grapes, including white grapes like Trebbiano and Malvasia. As wine trends and palettes have changed, most growers have eliminated the white grapes from their Chianti since they often caused the wines to be too light. Likewise, Chianti used to be recognized for it's distinct, squatty, straw-covered bottles, but producers have moved away from that since those bottles grew to be recognized as emblematic of a lesser quality wine.

All that aside, there are many world-class wines produced in Chianti, especially in the Chianti Classico zone located in the center of the region. Here you'll find medium-bodied, dry reds with firm tannins and high acidity. These wines are tremendous for pairing with Italian foods of all sorts.

Region / Tuscany

There are few regions as picturesque as Italy's Tuscany. And there are few regions that produce finer wines, either. Tuscany is home to legendary wine regions Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti, among others, where the red wine grape Sangiovese is king. It's also home to "Super Tuscans," a category of Tuscan wines that don't officially fall within the Italian wine classification system.

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.

The 2020 Chianti offers up crushed red/purplish berry fruit, spice, mint and dried flowers. Soft and fruity, it offers good purity, but also comes across as a bit light. In 2020, the Mori Chianti is attractive, but not quite the overachiever it can be. (Antonio Galloni)

This supple red shows a core of cherry and plum fruit allied to olive, juniper and tobacco notes. Delivers well-integrated tannins and acidic structure, lingering nicely on the finish. Sangiovese, Colorino and Pugnitello. Drink now through 2030. 29,000 cases made, 9,745 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)

A fresh, well-balanced Chianti Classico with notes of currants, olives, dried herbs and walnuts. It’s medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins. I like the dusty walnut character. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)

A nose of mixed berries with a backbone of crushed stone, graphite and freshly ground pepper transitions onto a palate still berry-forward but with savory undertones of meat and leather to provide contrast and firm tannins to keep things in line. (Danielle Callegari)
