Staff Pick Notes

When I first started in the wine industry, I’ll be honest - Italian wine scared me. Not tension from watching a horror movie scary; more so “Did I pack everything for my trip?” kind of scary. The varieties of grapes, styles, traditions and the history of Italian wines makes it almost ludicrous to choose the "best one," but there are some that you taste and just get it. This Chianti is one of those wines. Chianti Classico is one of those cornerstone styles that you must try in your wine journey and for me, Felsina does excellent work with their offering. Aromas of sun dried tomatoes, black pepper and ripe cherries lead into flavors of dried roses, thyme, wood smoke, red fruits and espresso. The tannins are velveteen and coupled with wonderful acidity. A soft oregano finish lingers endlessly, reassuring me that I made a wonderful choice.

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...
