The story!The chianti style dates back to the 13th century, when the earliest incarnations of the style were a white wine. Different terroirs of many different climates where the wines were being produced (and varietals of grape it was produced with) led to the wine becoming the ubiquitous and recognizable red style it is today. 

In your mouth: Wonderfully savory notes and flavors of ripe tomato, fresh basil, and cherry. A vibrant medium body with satin-like mouthfeel and notes of fruit which finishes with seductive overtones of salted dark chocolate. The complete absence of oak complements the mild tannins in this old-world style chianti that makes for interesting pairings and delightful solo drinking.
