Castello D’Albola Chianti Classico Reserva 2015 Red Wine
Chianti, the most popular wine in Italy and, interestingly, the most popular Italian wine in the world, is emblematic of what Italy means to the world of wine.
Fresh cherry, strawberries, and red plum delight the senses when drinking this wine, which is primarily fermented from Sangiovese.
Winemakers have spent the last few decades attempting to change the old image of Chianti: wine bottles in wicker baskets, also known as fiascoes. They’ve done so by producing very nice wines using cutting-edge growing and fermentation techniques.
Chianti is a Tuscan red wine that can contain trace amounts of white grapes during the blending process. This is not true for Chianti Classico, which must be made entirely of red Sangiovese grapes.
Chianti does not age well and loses its appeal quickly. Find the youngest bottle you can to maximise its vibrancy.
This wine is adaptable, and its high acidity allows it to pair well with a variety of foods. Chianti is best paired with fast food, pizza, red pasta, and salami sandwiches.
