The absence of oak aging allows the bright fruit aromatics of Sangiovese to take center stage, and there's plenty of tart cherry, raspberry and currant, along with hints of cranberry and pomegranate. There's a herbaceous leafiness as well, along with a slight minerality that adds depth.
Bright and energetic on the palate, this medium-bodied red showcases just about every red-berried fruit you can think of, with field strawberries, raspberries, and juicy pomegranate seeds at the fore. The tannins are soft and approachable, and Sangiovese's hallmark acidity provides lift and balance to the dry finish. While this doesn't need food, it's flexible enough to become a household favourite!
Match this wine's bright acidity with old school Italian-American classics like spaghetti and meatballs, chicken parmigiana, or your favourite local pizza.
Aromas and Flavours
Fresh B.C. cherries out of the back of a truck, all eaten before you can get them home!
Sometimes also referred to as 'cassis', this black fruit tasting note is common in red wines.
Tangy or sweet, juicy or tart: more sophisticated than a strawberry, but just as lush.
Remember playing with pebbles as a child and giving them a lick out of curiosity?
When was the last time you raked up all the leaves in your yard and jumped in the pile?
Handling and Serving
2022 - 2024
Pattini Chianti might be familiar to longtime WineCollective members - we first featured this gem of an Italian red in the spring of 2020, and the vintage quickly sold out. With the release of a new vintage (along with a 91-point score from noted Italian wine critic Luca Maroni), we couldn't resist reintroducing this wine to our members. It's every bit as good as the last vintage, and displays classic Chianti charm and loads of personality. The company behind the label is Progetti Agricoli, which works with small producers throughout Italy to get their wines to international markets and in the glasses of wine lovers all over the world. Pattini produces two Chiantis: a Riserva, and this Chianti DOCG. Made primarily from estate-grown Sangiovese with a splash of Canaiolo (a minor but important blending grape), Pattini is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel and aged in neutral cement tanks before release. It's a perfect go-to Chianti that can be enjoyed over the next two years at a cool 16 C.
