2015 Val Di Botte Chianti
Chianti is a wine region inside Tuscany in Central Italy. If you don’t know it by name, you might know it by its reputation. I’m not talking about the wine you get in neighborhood Italian restaurants with the woven baskets caressing the bottles. I’m talking about Chianti in all its glory, the Chianti region that makes wines that rival the best in the world. Val Di Botte Chianti is 85% Sangiovese and a blend of Canaiolo Nero and Cabernet Sauvignon. The results of this blend are intense, but refined, with flavors of wild berries and spicy notes intertwining. This fruity, spicy, slightly smoky, and generally pleasant red wine is a delight to have at the dinner table. It's versatile with food, getting along with everything from cheese and charcuterie, hearty pastas, pizza, and meat and fish dishes in the Tuscan style.
