Why we love it

Chianti is probably one of the most famous and underrated Italian wine because a good Chianti seems to be difficult to find and still too many wine drinkers associate Chianti to the cheap red wine on flask that filled supermarket’s shelves and restaurant tables in the 80’ or the cheap, tasteless, almost watery, Chianti available from supermarkets. Luckily, good Chianti wines exist, they do not come in flask anymore and are seriously good red wines.

Our Chianti is a Gold Medal winner and rated one of the best value for money wine from the UK Sommelier Association, made from organically grown sangiovese grapes cultivated in the province of Arezzo and belongs to the DOCG Colli Aretini denomination, one of the 7 Chianti's appellations.

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

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...
