Chianti Wine

Hardly any other Italian wine is as well-known as Chianti wine. The name 'Chianti' was in use as early as the 13th Century. Back then, however, it was used to describe a white wine. It wasn't until the 19th Century that the Chianti slowly began to refer to the delicious dry red wines we know today. By the 1940s at the latest, this nectar was on everyone's tongue, with a double entendre: Because the Chianti wine was becoming increasingly popular, a song was written about it – The Chianti Song - which is still played over the airwaves to this day. This red wine from Tuscany is even a commonly used, albeit incorrect, synonym for Italian wine. You can order the latest vintages of this export star conveniently from Vinello.

Chianti Wine – a variety of flavours

At 75 percent, the red Sangiovese grape is the number 1 choice for Chianti wine. The remaining cuvee is made up of 15 percent Canaiolo and 10 percent other grape varieties such as Malvasia or Trebbiano. So what does a typical Chianti wine taste like? Fruity flavours of cherry, brambleberry or prune, combined with an elegant acidity and a pleasantly fuzzy tannin compose the general description of a Chianti wine. Depending upon terroir and the variable percentage of different grape varieties, this Italian red wine can exhibit a multitude of aromas from coffee or leather and even tobacco. These all contribute to the multifaceted character of a Chianti wine with a spectrum that ranges from dry wines to the sweet dessert wines Vin Santo del Chianti Classico and Vin Santo del Chianti.

Origin and wine growing region of Chianti Red Wine

The area between Florence and Siena along the Via Chiantigiana is considered the original Chianti wine growing region and is characterised by its splendid, terraced vineyards, romantic villages and impressive castles. Over the course of the last few centuries, the Chianti wine growing region has been expanded. The currently valid region of origin is divided into 8 sub-regions: Chianti Colli Fiorentini, Chianti Colli Senesi, Chianti Colline Lucchesi, Chianti Colline Pisane, Chianti Aretini, Chianti Montalbano, Chianti Rufina and Chianti Montespertoli.

Chianti Classico – the number one Chianti

Even though all of the products from this region are termed 'Chianti' and also have DOCG status, insiders still differentiate between the quality levels of Chianti wines. Only wines from the original growing region are permitted to bear the name Chianti Classico on their labels. The trademark of a 'Classico' is the black rooster (gallo nero) on the labels and stands for the very highest quality. As the very best of all Chianti wines, the Classico is subject to strict production regulations, is composed of the highest percentage of Sangiovese and is the only Chianti that is not permitted to be blended with a portion of white grapes. The Classico vintages from 2012, 2013 and 2014 are held in very high esteem. While the wines from 2012 were described as 'precise' with a fine fruitiness and meaty tannin structure, and the 2013s as well-balanced, the 2014 vintage displayed surprising expression and a lightly elevated acidity.

If a Chianti DOCG wine does not originate from the traditional region, then the name on the label must contain a geographic designation. This stipulation does not detract from the quality of these equally good Chianti wines. The sweet Vin Santo del Chianti Classico and Vin Santo del Chianti also have DOC appellation and round out the rich repertoire of Chianti wines.

Foodpairing with Chianti Red Wine

Simple Chiantis can be stored for up to three years. Because they do not develop further, however, they should be enjoyed young. The optimal serving temperature for a Chianti wine is 16 - 18 degrees Celsius. Additional decanting in a wine decanter improves its flavour. Steak tartare, pan-fried meats, pasta and tomato dishes all pair well with young Chianti wines. Classicos have a maturation potential of up to 10 years. They represent culinary pleasure, especially when served with beef goulash, lamb or crispy duck.
