Fresh & Juicy

Produced by Villa Calcinaia, who is located in the heart of Chianti Classico, near the village of Greve-in-Chianti. This Tuscan estate has been home to the Capponi family since 1524, and continues to be owned by them to this day. This wine displays notes of red cherry, cranberry and mineral aromas. It's smooth, medium bodied and dry with vibrant red fruit flavours, soft tannins and bright acidity.

Chianti Classico wines are awesome with fatty dishes and tomato sauce-based meals, such as pizza and pasta! It also pairs amazingly with charcuterie and cheese boards, or rich pieces of meat like Bistecca alla Fiorentina.

About the Winery

Villa Calcinaia

Villa Calcinaia is situated in the centre of Chianti Classico near the town of Greve-in-Chianti. This historic estate has been home to the Counts Capponi since 1524, and is maintained by Sebastiano Capponi and his brother Niccolo. In 1992, Count Sebastiano Capponi became the first in the history of the family to manage the winery personally, giving a new life to the vineyards and the cellar.

The family owns 200 hectares of land planted with olive trees, vines and pine trees. Organic farming is the standard at Villa Calcinaia where 75 acres of vineyard are planted with Sangiovese, Merlot, Canaiolo, Grechetto, Vernaccia, Trebbiano, and Malvasia. Through every vintage, the wines are crafted with food in mind. They are balanced, elegant, perfumed, and savoury yet refreshing with restrained vigour and intensity that ensures longevity.

91 Points - David Lawrason

Here's a tidy, fresh and youthful Chianti Classico with a serious side. I like the nicely lifted, piquant raspberry/currant fruit inflected with a touch of meaty chorizo, oak spice and herbs. It is medium weight, fairly dense and freshly sour-edged without austerity. Likewise youthful tannins work well. Balance is excellent; the length too. Shines on value. Best aged a couple of years.
