Staff Pick Notes

The name 'Chianti' may carry a specific connotation, but it's actually a pretty large area that incorporates multiple styles. All of them are made primarily from Sangiovese grapes grown within the Chianti regions of Tuscany, but that's only the beginning of the story. Villa Sant'Anna is in the town of Montepulciano, but this is their Chianti Colli Senesi, which comes from a wide expanse of hillside vineyards between the central Classico zone and the city of Siena. It's light bodied and open with a youthful energy to it. A lot of signature Tuscan notes are here: cherry preserves, dried herbs, leather, espresso, but the lightness really perks all of it up. It's savory and refreshing with good acidity. This is, of course, a superb food wine and drinks nicely slightly chilled.

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano shows the softer side of the grape, containing up to 20% of other varieties. Young Chianti often smells of fresh...
