Carobbio Chianti Classico Reserva DOCG 2015
- Textured, savoury
When it comes to Chianti, absolutely first and foremost, you’ve got to decide on food. It has all the elements that pair well with great dishes. Tartness, which you actually want to enhance flavour, and those savoury sour cherry and red fruit notes. There’s high natural acidity and the tannins are quite intense, so you get this beautiful, chalky, grippy thing going on as well. It’s quite rustic. We recently opened a bottle of this recently at an Italian restaurant with prosciutto, olive oil and pizza flying everywhere, and it just fit in really seamlessly.
When we’re talking about Chianti it’s important to know we’re mainly talking about sangiovese. The majority of the blend, if not the entire wine, is going to be made of sangiovese. Yes, it’s fresh, vibrant and lively but there’s also a little bit of depth there. A really good example of Chianti Classico, aged beautifully, and one of Tuscany’s gifts to the wine world.

Nestled in the hills of Tuscany, between Florence and Siena, Tenuta Carobbio is 50ha of ancient vineyards, olive groves and woods. Within the “golden hollow” of Panzano, the vineyard is protected by hills and mountains that serve to absorb the warmth of the afternoon sun and ensure that the Chianti Classico and Super Tuscan grapes are perfectly ripened. Sounds pretty speccy right? What if I also told you that in the 15th Century the dad of the actual Mona Lisa lived in the traditional farmhouse? Natural and historical bragging rights aside, since its inception in 1985 Carobbio have focused on excellence. The entrepreneur Carlo Novarese sought to combine the best in modern agricultural science with tradition. Handpicking is still used to ensure only the healthiest and ripest of grapes are used to their produce refined, structured and fragrant wines.
Ah...Tuscany. The home of rolling hills, extra virgin olive oil, Steak Florentine and, of course, Chianti. Everything here is about the earth, and it shows through in the produce. Earthy, vinous, purely rustic and unadulterated. Some of our most enjoyable experiences have come from here. They don't generally come cheap, but they're well worth it.
