Tasting Notes

One of our latest additions to the Chianti Classico bin. It should really fall under the sub-section of "Supremely Elegant Chianti Classico," but we realize that this will confuse some. What's most straightforward about this is the pristine red fruit on the palate that's both lithe and focused at the same time.

Staff Pick Notes

This is perhaps one of the best examples of Sangiovese you can find: Giovanna Morganti makes only one wine, “Le Trame,” and she makes it very, very well. She has fought with the DOC to create a classification of Chianti that reflects the land where it was grown. This struggle with and love of terrior is exactly what you’ll find in this bottle. Its nose is fresh with grassy red fruit and wet earth; its palate is elegant, structured and dark with velvety tannins. Be sure to decant this wine a good hour or two before enjoying it. This deep and complex wine is an absolute treasure and will only get better with age.

Tuscany

When you think of Tuscan wine, think of Sangiovese, the grape that is common to most great Tuscan reds (Vernaccia is the only white wine made here). Brunello di Montalcino, one of the most complex expressions of Sangiovese, has the best aging potential. Vino Nobile di Montepulciano shows the softer side of the grape, containing up to 20% of other varieties. Young Chianti often smells of fresh...
