Parentage of the grape: Unknown

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 »

  • Carpineto Chianti Classico 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Meh, I really expected much more from a Classico. Nothing like the recent Isole Olena I opened. Read More

  • Aquila d'Oro Chianti 2008

    Snoothrank:

    4.99 at Trader Joes. Maybe a little on the sweet side. Drinkable but not going to rush out to get this one. Read More

  • Acorn Sangiovese Alegría Vineyards Russian River Valley 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Wood, wet earth, twizzler candy, some sandy and chalky soil tones all blend on the nose. This starts out feeling quite soft but quickly gains the snap of good acidity and astringent tannins that help to frame the slightly dark, but still transparent black raspberry and cherry fruit. Its a touch hot on the palate, and that serves to accentuate t... Read More

  • Acorn Sangiovese Alegría Vineyards Russian River Valley 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Seductive oaky eucalyptus nose. Oak dominated prickly start that boils over into a medicinal chalky finish. A huge fun wine but the finish kind of ruined it for me. Read More

  • Acorn Sangiovese Alegría Vineyards Russian River Valley 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Clumps of earth, red fruit, and spice nose. Oak is certainly present but well integrated with the big bright red fruit, mostly raspberries and cranberries. There's a bit of burnt rubber on the finish. Read More

  • Montevertine IGT Cl Sangioveto-Canaiolo-Colorino Azienda Agricola Montevertine Radda In Chianti-Siena Toscana 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Very balsamic on the nose and very fresh with grassy notes, a bit of terpene, and emerging floral tones. In the mouth this is very young and disjointed with edgy acids and a bit of heat on the finish. The midpalate shows some nice cherry fruit but this comes off as short, simple and lean tonight. This needs time to come together. Judgment reserved Read More

  • Montevertine IGT Cl Sangioveto-Canaiolo-Colorino Azienda Agricola Montevertine Radda In Chianti-Siena Toscana 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Deep and earthy on the nose with tremendous floral tones and smoky, slightly spicy tones of dried berries. This is a mouth filling wine with slightly astringent tannins that add nice grab in the mouth. Floral and dark up front with notes of hibiscus, earth, and bitter cherry on the mid-palate that lead to a long strawberry toned finish. This is... Read More

  • Azienda Agricola Montevertine Sangiovese Blend Toscana IGT Pian del Ciampolo 2007

    Snoothrank:

    The nose is full of earthy, waxy cranberry fruit edged with notes of pine and roast beef. On the palate this is young and bright with surprisingly rich texture and very ripe wild berry fruits. Juicy, fine and long, this is a wonderful example of fresh Sangiovese at its best. 88pts Read More
