2019 Cappone Chianti Classico
Made with organically grown Sangiovese, this has aromas of red-skinned berries, violet and scorched earth. The juicy, no-frills palate offers raspberry, white pepper and nutmeg alongside smooth tannins. Drink through 2025.
Produced by Villa Calcinaia, who is located in the heart of Chianti Classico, near the village of Greve-in-Chianti. This Tuscan estate has been home to the Capponi family since 1524, and continues to be owned by them to this day.
This wine displays notes of red cherry, cranberry and mineral aromas. It's smooth, medium bodied and dry with vibrant red fruit flavours, soft tannins and bright acidity.
Chianti Classico wines are awesome with fatty dishes and tomato sauce-based meals, such as pizza and pasta! It also pairs amazingly with charcuterie and cheese boards, or rich pieces of meat like Bistecca alla Fiorentina.
