Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG

The masterful Franco Bernabei is the talent behind some of Italy’s finest wines – his top bottlings can fetch $100+ (and far more) a bottle. Nicknamed ‘Mr. Sangiovese’ for his deft skill with Tuscany’s star red, he’s made this hugely acclaimed Chianti Riserva exclusively for you. And the best part? You’ll pay way less than $100 a bottle for a wine of serious quality.

Franco worked closely with the Taddei family (vine growers since 1904) to select grapes from their Colli Senesi properties. This hillside sub-region borders Chianti Classico (home to the original and best Chianti vineyards) and is beloved for its beautifully ripe, pure-fruited Sangiovese. And the year? 2013 is highly rated for its “sleek, vibrant wines with bright, focused fruit flavors,” says Wine Spectator – just wait until you taste this fine example, sporting a 96-point rating from top critic Luca Maroni and a gold medal from Mundus Vini 2017.

Two luxurious years aging in top-of-the-line French oak barrels adds savory spice notes to the ripe cherry and violet aromas and flavors. The palate is rich and silky, with a long, refreshing finish. As with most Chianti, this Riserva will be a delicious partner for wood-fired pizza, meaty pastas and more.
