    CHIANTI (CLASSICO) DOCG WINE

    Chianti Classico Italian Tuscany winesThe basic grape for this famous Italian wine is the Sangiovese grape (75-90%), supplemented with Canaiolo (5-10%), and the white Trebbiano Toscano, and Malvasia (5-10%). Only 5% of white grapes may be added to Chianti Classico. The white grapes are used to slightly reduce the harsh tannin that can be associated with the Sangiovese grape. A good Chianti is a very intense and clear ruby red colour. With age this tends towards granite red. The nose is very pleasing, full, and delicate. Connoisseurs can detect subtle notes of violets in it.

    COLLI DELL’ ETRURIA CENTRALE DOC ITALIAN WINE

    Colli Dell Etruria Centrale DOCMany wines that do not reach the required standard for Chianti DOCG may be classified as Colli dell’ Etruria Centrale DOC. It would be an injustice though to merely dismiss this recently created DOC as a receptacle for poor Chianti wines. There are great Italian wines made within this DOC that do not meet the stipulated proportions of grapes. Just as with Colli Lucchesi some wine makers steadfastly refuse to choose solely from the four mandatory grape varieties. They believe that the combination of Sangiovese with the Cabernets (Sauvignon and Franc) delivers much better results. This was absolutely not permitted and hence until recently the ‘super Tuscan’ wines were downgraded to vino da tavola or table wine.
