I have added this second Chianti, a Chianti DOCG, which is a different style from the Chianti Classico DOCG. Non-classico Chianti is more fruit-forward and an easy-to-drink style. They use the same blend of grapes Sangiovese Toscano and Caniolo Nero, though 90% and 10% here. Canaiolo brings perfume and softens the Sangiovese a little.
Unlike many Chiantis this wine has not been oak aged which means it retains the fruit flavours and aromas. The wine is naturally fermented and aged in concrete tanks for 6 to 8 months and aged in bottle for 3 months before release. It’s a great example of the style: a young, early drinking Chianti, elegant and fresh with clean crunchy fruit.
I also have some of the 2017 vintage available.
Usually Chianti is best consumed with food but as the tannins are light and the acidity and fruit flavours high you could drink this without food. Recommended to drink with lamb, game, duck, goose, steak and other red meats, pizza and tomato-based dishes - think Italian!
The most typical and traditional wine of the estate. The blend consists of Sangiovese and Canaiolo. This is a classic young Chianti: fresh and lively, light to medium bodied.

"90% Sangiovese, 10% Canaiolo organically grown. Unfiltered. Mid crimson. Attractive, leesy cherry nose and succulent mid-weight fruit on the palate with soft, drying tannins. Something deliciously unpolished about this."
