2018 Chianti Colli Senesi (Casabianca, Fattoria)

Fattoria Casabianca, Chianti Colli Senesi, Tuscany, Italy 2018

{organic} 80% Sangiovese, with the remaining 20% comprised of Merlot, Cabernet, Canaiolo, Colorino

FRESH FOREST CHERRY, FINETOOTHED TANNIN, REFRESHING ACIDITY

Gleamingly red and brimming with life, this brilliant gem from the southwestern reaches of the Chianti appellations represents the brighter, more refreshing possibilities of Sangiovese and company. Not thin or “sharp” but spry, upbeat, timeless, and almost palate cleansing, this is the kind of Chianti that gets along splendidly with tomato-heavy cuisine and, to be honest, food in general. It’s extremely versatile. The Casabianca farm prides itself on its unspoiled landscape, environmental stewardship, and the beautiful wildlife that can be comfortably spotted in its proximity…hopefully while sipping at this ruby-in-a-glass.

Serving Suggestion: Thinly-sliced Chinese eggplant & sweet onion w/ olive oil, butter, oregano, pepper, & cinnamon. Cannellini bean & tomato salad w/ balsamic vinegar, pine nuts, & dried cherries.
