This gorgeous Chianti represents an old-school, no frills style that is meant to stun you on the table. Pair with salumi, prosciutto, or pizza. Ripe and rich, but with ample freshness, you’ll find commingling flavors of leather, cherry, baking spices, and smoke–classic, unimprovable Chianti at its best.
Silvio Messana left his life in New York City to take over his family’s estate in the heart of the Chianti region of Tuscany. He and his wife Catalina quickly discovered their passion for biodynamics and haven’t looked back. Deep and complex, this Sangiovese rosé is both cerebral and totally quaffable.
Monteraponi Chianti Classico Riserva Il Campitello 2018
Monteraponi is known for making classic, elegant expressions of Chianti Classico. Their ‘Il Campitello’ is primarily Sangiovese & ready for some cellar time, but opens up after an hour or so of decanting. It’s a wine with nerve & can take on whatever slab of beef you want to pair it with.
The Pacina estate is located right on the border of the Chianti Classico zone, but this is not your typical sangiovese blend: racy with an elegant touch of volatility, you’ll be taken on a wild ride with each sip. It seems to evoke the landscape surrounding Pacina’s vines, full of olive groves, natural wildlife, and woodlands to maintain a thriving ecosystem.
