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 »

  • Mantellassi Morellino di Scansano Poggio Etrusco 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Excellent sangiovese blend (5% cab, 5% Canaiolo nero). Fruit forward, not so earthy, with mild tannins and a good finish. Well balanced and very much a food wine. Read More

  • Piccini Chianti Italy Tuscany Dry 2004

    Snoothrank:

    A sangiovese and canaiolo product, it's a typical Chianti wine. It starts soft and blossoms on the tongue with peppery notes and a variety of heartier fruits. It avoids being too harsh and finishes surprisingly clean for a "budget" wine. As with most Chiantis, it is much better taken while eating - particular favorites are pizzas and cheese-f... Read More

  • Azzienda Agricola Montevertine Aqua Vitae le Pergo 2008

    Snoothrank:

    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...

  • Avignonesi Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2008

    Snoothrank:

    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

    Snoothrank:

    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...
