Why we love it

Our Chianti, organic certified, is made in the province of Arezzo and belongs to the DOCG Colli Aretini denomination, one of the 7 Chianti's appellations, and it is a Gold Medal winner and rated one of the best value for money wine of the competition.

Made with hand picked organic Sangiovese grapes from old vineyards, this Chianti is a great red wine, it has a complex nose with hints of cherry, violet and spices. In the mouth, the wine is full, fruity, smooth, with soft tannins and a long aftertaste.

Chianti is probably one of the most famous and at the same time, unknown Italian wine because a good Chianti seem to be rare these days and still too many wine drinkers associate Chianti to the cheap red wine on a flask that filled supermarket’s shelves and restaurant tables in the 80’ or the cheap, tasteless, almost watery Chianti available nowadays. Luckily, good Chianti do not come in flask anymore unless bought from a souvenir shop in Florence and can be a seriously good red wine alternative.

The artisan who made it

At the beginning of the century, three brothers from Milan, Vanni, Carlo and Marco Cattaneo , bought a decadent Tenuta San Jacopo (an 18th century estate) with the idea of bringing it back to its former glory. Their goal was to produce “great Tuscan and Chianti” wines, elegant and refined. They restored the old vines and then planted new ones wherever restoration wasn’t possible and they decided to follow organic cultivation methods. As well as quality wines, the estate also produces a very limited quantity of organic olive oil which they obtain from the olive trees surrounding the vineyards.

I have tried many, many bottles of Chianti over the years, but nothing comes close to this. This may not simply be the best Chianti I have ever tasted, but possibly the best wine I have ever drunk. I think I will have to try the Chainti riserva next...
