Italy / Tuscany / Chianti Classico DOCG

Red of Sangiovese

"The Chianti Classico region is known for vanity estates owned by successful people from other fields, with the occasional large commercial winery, not 'terroir' wines. In this sense it is rather like Bordeaux or Napa. But there are many exceptions to this, and Castellinuzza e Piuca is just that: a tiny property near the little isolated hamlet of Lamole, a family-run winery that is the epitome of 'local wine.' The grapes are Sangiovese (in this case, Sangiovese di Lamole, the local sub-type) and Canaiolo; the winemaking is simple and transparent; and the wine is wonderful, full of interesting flavors but above all drinkable." -Oliver McCrum
