Region: Chianti DOCG
Body: medium- full
Today’s Chianti requirements have evolved, but Bettion’s impact remains.
While the region has been exporting wine since the 4th century b.c., the modern day Chianti recipe comes from Bettino Ricasoli in the 19th Century. He was the first to require that Sangiovese be the main grape (70%) blended with Caniolo and Malvasia
Today’s Chianti requirements have evolved, but Bettion’s impact remains. Here we have a sangiovese and Malvasia blend with classic blueberry fruit, good acidity, earthy spice and soflt tannins. While this chiati may not be as complex as it’s history, it has much to offer for $12.
Try it with: Manicotti stuffed with spinach and cheese, melon wrapped in prosciutto, and, risotto (seafood, meat or veggie)
Here we add information on wines as they come in. We will try to keep up with out-of-stocks and vintage changes but we make no promises. For the most up to date information call, email or stop by. Cheers!
