ABOUT ITALIAN CHIANTI

Italian Chianti wine holds a storied place in Italy's winemaking heritage, hailing primarily from the picturesque hills of Tuscany. Known for its vibrant red color and medium-bodied character, Chianti is predominantly made from Sangiovese grapes, often blended with indigenous varieties like Canaiolo and Colorino. The wine's flavor profile typically features bright cherry and plum notes, complemented by herbal undertones of oregano and thyme, with a pleasant acidity and moderate tannins. Chianti is versatile at the table, pairing wonderfully with Italian cuisine, from tomato-based pasta dishes to grilled meats and aged cheeses. Recognizable by its iconic straw-covered bottles (fiasco), Chianti has evolved over centuries from a humble table wine to a symbol of Tuscany's winemaking prowess, offering both quality and tradition in every glass.
