Merlot, Sangiovese, Canaiolo
Brambly red-fruit notes, so typical of Sangiovese, are joined by hints of red plum, tomato leaf, and dried herbs. Faint tobacco notes contribute a smokey component, and there's a distinct note of black tea that adds depth and complexity.
Medium-bodied and round on the palate, with a nice balance between tart red fruit and savoury spice. This is an elegant example of Chianti, with good length through the dry, savoury finish.
Red fruit flavours? Check. Bright acidity? Check. Don't overthink it - match this with Bucatini all'Amatriciana, pasta pomodoro, or a sausage and pepper pizza.
Sweet and tart, just like the cranberry sauce at your family's Thanksgiving table.
Fresh B.C. cherries out of the back of a truck, all eaten before you can get them home!
Sweet, fruity and sensual, similar stone fruit aromas to a peach, but without the 'fuzziness.'
A warm cup of Earl grey tea - with floral scents and slightly earthy notes.
The smell of a freshly rolled cigar, slightly sweet, and earthy - just like Grandpa's hugs.
2022 - 2028
You'd be hard-pressed to imagine a more scenic wine region than Italy's Tuscany, so it's no wonder that the area and its wines (notably Chianti) have long captivated the imagination of wine lovers worldwide. Once ubiquitous on the red-and-white-checkered tablecloths of every neighbourhood Italian restaurant in North America, Chianti developed an often-undeserved reputation as producing only rustic, forgettable, everyday wines. Thankfully, things are now on a bit of an upswing, and Chianti's enduring charm is once again attracting the attention it deserves.
Villa Montorsoli's example is made from grapes fermented in a mix of concrete vats and temperature-controlled stainless steel to retain freshness and aromatics. Enjoy at a cooler 16 C over the next 3-5 years.
