History of the grape: In the 18th century, Canaiolo actually played a bigger role in Chianti than did Sangiovese. Then, in the 1870s, Bettino Ricasoli created a formula for Chianti that more closely resembles the modern one. This one was dominated by Sangiovese with only a bit of Read more »

  • Poggio Alla Sala Nobile di Montepulciano 2004

Brunello, Chianti, Vino Nobile, Morellino, ton's of Rossos and varietal wines from the west coast will make this a great GTi.I'll kick off the... Read More
