Join us for some classic Chiantis!

This week, join us in beautiful Tuscany, world renowned for superb wines and of course in particular, Chianti.

We bring you a selection of Sangiovese based wines from the normal everyday drinking to some of the very best examples that the region can offer.

Some of you might be familiar with them and some of you may not however these wines suit the upcoming Summer season perfectly. They are flavoursome and spicy yet beautifully clean and refreshing.

P.S. Very few of the two Castellare di Castellina wines left so you’ll need to be quick on them!

Salud!
Miguel and Jean-Pierre

  • Castellare di Castellina I Sodi di San Niccolo 2013 NZD $139.95NZD $119.95 Chianti - Tuscany
    “The 2013 I Sodi di S. Niccolò is 85% Sangioveto (a more antique name for Sangiovese) and 15% Malvasia Nera from a single vineyard. This wine opens to a darkly saturated appearance and shows ruby, garnet and purple highlights. The bouquet is powerful but seamless at the same time with smooth transitions between dark cherry, spice, tobacco and moist clay. In the mouth, this wine shows dense extraction, but it never feels too weighed down by that mass. Instead, the freshness of the fruit and the natural acidity give the wine a bright and buoyant personality. Aged in barrique for 30 months, this is a delightful Tuscan red. - Monica Larner” -- 96/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
  • Castellare di Castellina Chianti Classico 2016 NZD $49.95NZD $39.95 Chianti - Tuscany
    There is Chianti and there is Chianti… but this is super Chianti Classico! Old fashioned with wonderful saline flavours, medium to full-bodied with aromas of prosciutto, cypress and dry meats. When we said there is Chianti and there is Chianti, we mean this is the true classical style being dry, high acidity, beautifully perfumed, lovely balance and almost seductive, once you try it you always go back to it!
  • Straccali Chianti Classico 2016 NZD $29.95NZD $26.95 Chianti - Tuscany
    A great example of a Chianti Classico, medium to full bodied, concentrated and dry yet bursting with dry herbs, slight saltiness to it with perfect balance, complexity and structure. In essence what you would expect from a superb Chianti Classico that just goes fantastically well with Tuscan dishes such as pastas, prosciutto etc. Drink now or cellar for the next 4-5 years.
  • Straccali Chianti 2016 NZD $19.95NZD $18.95 Chianti - Tuscany
    Giulio Straccali has been producing Chianti from his very own vineyards since 1925. This is a medium bodied Chianti which is dry, leathery and spicy with hints of dry herbs such as rosemary, thyme and tarragon. This is exactly what you would expect for a wonderful Chianti that is drinking beautifully now but will also cellar for 3-4 years and perfect with pastas, anti-pasto etc.
  • Straccali Toscana Rosso 2015 NZD $18.95NZD $17.95 Chianti - Tuscany
    2015 is a stunning vintage in Tuscany as in most of Italy. Made from Sangiovese, the native grape of Tuscany, responsible for producing stunning Chiantis. This is just a straight Sangiovese from Tuscany but is really what a good Sangiovese should be. Medium to full bodied, hints of leather, dry herbs, almost slightly salty with beautiful supple tannins. Excellent now but will also improve for 2-3 years.
  • Straccali Pinot Grigio 2017 NZD $18.95NZD $17.95 Chianti - Tuscany
    Straccali dating back to 1925 has been producing excellent Chianti and of course superb Pinot Grigio. No oak at all in this Pinot Grigio, full bodied, ripe and intense with an abundance of dry herbs, slightly oily and rich. Drinking beautifully now especially with fish and shell fish but will also keep for a number of years.
