The story! Chianti, Chianti — oh how we love thee! This style has been in production since the 13th century. The Sangiovese is gently pressed and spends a short time fermenting and in oak before bottling. Best with pizza!   

In your mouth: On your palate, I will dazzle you with flavors of ripe tomato, fresh basil, and bright cherry. You are in for a treat with my satin-like mouthfeel and seductive overtones of salted dark chocolate. I play well with others, but between you and me... three's a crowd and I am best enjoyed solo.
