Aged Chianti Classico Reserva is one of Italy's gifts to the world.
and we are eternally grateful.
$288 / 6PK
We recently opened a bottle of this at an Italian restaurant with prosciutto, olive oil and pizza flying everywhere, and it just fit in really seamlessly. For Italian wine - and for Italians as a whole - food and wine may as well be one.

Why do we love this wine?
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. This completely stunning example is fresh, vibrant and lively but there’s also depth there, drawing the wine into the old world with equal parts charm and finesse. Completely classic and utterly compelling Chianti Classico that has aged beautifully. This wine, and Chianti Classico Riserva as a whole, is one of Italy's gifts to the world, and we're not worthy.
Wine nerd stuff
