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 »

  • Benedetto Chianti 2010

    Snoothrank:

    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

    Snoothrank:

    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

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva DOCG 2007

    Snoothrank:

    The nose was intense yet finessed with crushed wild berries, plums and citrus rinds. On the palate, it was velvety smooth with mixed berries, inner floral notes and earth tones. The finish was long and clung to the palate with staying fruit and fine tannins. Read More

    Wine review by Eric Guido


  • Sangiovese is easily one of my favorite wines to pair with food. It’s ... ... blends Sangiovese with Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo, Mammolo or Colorino, it is the blending partners that lend the wine its color and softer personality. When Sangiovese is made as a mono-varietal wine, it takes low yields, long macerations and severe wood aging regiments ... Read More

  • Melini Sangiovese Blend Chianti Borghi d'Elsa 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Always a solid choice, often seen on wine lists. Rich, dark fruit, not too acidic, with a minerally cocoa taste reminiscent of Ovaltine, or is that Tootsie Roll? Read More
