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 »

  • Azzienda Agricola Montevertine Aqua Vitae le Pergo 2008


    Definitely one of the better Chianti's i've had and will have to try again for a more accurate review. But the nose is of smooth black cherry with a body on the lighter-side-of-medium that is very easy and pleasing. Read More

  • Hello everyone, my name is Mike Madaio and I'm excited to be a part of the Snooth Mentor program, focusing on Italian wines. Despite the subject heading (which means - I think - "Let's drink some Italian wine!"), I am not from Italy, but I was raised in an Italian-American family and thus have targeted (but not limited!) my obsessions to that cu...

    Wine review by luca chevalier

  • Avignonesi Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2008


    This is one of my favorite wine's on Bar Italia's wine list, though I prefer the 2007 to the 2008. The 2008 has a nose of black cherry, roasted herbs, and smoky oak and follows with flavors of the same. Great fruit with a silky texture and nicely balanced oak. It lacks the dense black currants of the 2007 that I remember. The finish is lacking f... Read More

  • Benedetto Chianti 2009


    This is earthy and dry on the nose with more than a whiff of oxidation. A very soil driven, earthy, leathery nose is nicely complex but decidedly old-school. In the mouth this is fine, still old school and not very complex though there are some nice mineral notes and a touch of blue fruit accenting the strawberry notes. Texturally this is actual...

  • Benedetto Chianti 2010


    A bit fudgy on the nose and very ripe, this still shows a bit of roasted herb and a touch of oak, along with some bretty animal notes. Very ripe in the mouth delivering a big rush of cherry fruit, accented with spicy oak and a hint of vanilla. Nice acids here add brightness but the wood tannins are a bit assertive and lend the finish a chewy cha... Read More

  • Melini Sangiovese Blend Chianti Borghi d'Elsa 2010


    Seems a bit dumb on the nose, showing some bitter almond and green strawberry notes. On the palate this is not the most expressive, but boy is it well balanced and lively without being lean. Round and smooth with simple cherry and strawberry fruits, delivered with nice richness and really attractive structural balance. This is absolutely gluggab... Read More

  • Benedetto Chianti 2009


    Some dirt on the nose with hints of smoked meat lead into a palate of soft cherries and raspberries. Fairly light in the mouth and on the finish- not complex by any means but a nice sipping wine! Read More
