Place: Chianti - Tuscany, Italy
This is a Chianti that consistently over-delivers. From the pastoral hills of Maremma, it transports us to sunnier climes and slower times.
It’s at once pure and rustic. Fresh cherry abounds, as per, grounded by both earthiness and smokiness. Great to sip on as is, but red sauce pastas or pizzas are definitely the ticket. We recently enjoyed it with a long-laboured lasagne and it truly hit the spot. Molto buono!
