    Stunning and well awarded Chianti from a top producer. The wine is deep ruby red in colour, with perfumes of sour cherry and plums leading to notes of leather and tobacco. It has great depth of flavour, with juicy fruit and supple tannins, giving way to a silky-smooth texture. It has a great structure and finishes with a fine mineral note.

    Region

    Ancient towns perched atop hills with commanding views, sun-drenched days and hillsides dotted with vines and olive trees. The sunlight, the food and wine. Tuscany is a remarkable place. The white wines are crisp and savoury, Trebbiano is widely planted along with Malvasia, Vermentino and Vernaccia, the latter staring in the excellent Vernaccia di San Gimignano. Sangiovese is the undisputed king of the red grape varieties and is the base of such well known wines as Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. International grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot are also planted and in the DOC Bolgheri region, when blended with Sangiovese, the famous ‘Super Tuscan’ (now designated IGT) wines were born, the most famous examples being Sassicaia, Ornellaia and Tignanello. From sapid, racy whites through to savoury Chainti’s and bold IGT expressions, Tuscany offers much to the wine drinker and is firmly cemented as one of the world's great wine regions. Local Knowledge: It is possible to base yourself in Florence and venture out on day trips to tackle Tuscany’s famous wine towns but spend at least one night in a quintessential Tuscan town like Montepulciano.

    The purity of fruit here really makes an impression on you. The nose shines with freshly picked blackcurrants, dark plums, freshly cut herbs, cinnamon, raspberry cheesecake, glazed cherries, orange and lemon rind. The palate is so well-crafted with a silky ball of tannins surrounded by layers of blue and red fruit and enveloping acidity. A long finish. From organically grown grapes.

    A little more love on this site, of late, for Sangiovese. Importer: World Wine Estates

    Blackberry, dark cherry, spice, almonds, violet top note, and plenty of sweet smoky earth and suede leather. Medium-bodied, bright but rich in cherry and red fruits, an orange tang through thick silty tannin, lots of grip and an earthy, inky, tea infused finish of excellent length. The earthy pulse of Chianti is captured well in bottle here, albeit in a fairly modern style.
