Chianti Classico DOCG 2010 Straccali
Chianti Classico is not the same as mere Chianti. “Classico” means that the grapes were grown in the oldest delimited zone in the region, and the production code is quite strict. Only vineyards situated on hillsides above 700 meters with advantageous orientation may be included. Vine density is spelled out as are maximum yields, and for DOCG even the maximum amount of wine per ton of grapes is set by law. Chianti Classico is no ordinary wine and this is no ordinary Chianti Classico. Straccali was founded in 1925 but a recent partnership with the Zingarelli family, bringing in thw wine making team from their Rocca Delle Macie estate, has raised the quality of this solid value wine immensely. Their vineyards are up to 1,800 feet above sea level, where the cool temperatures combine with the direct sunlight to bring out all of the complexity and nuance that Sangiovese can deliver. 90% Sangiovese blended with 10% Canaiolo and Merlot aged in oak casks for 12 months and then in bottle. This wine offers ripe cherry, anise, tobacco and cedar notes in a supple easy-to-enjoy style. Best of all it's a tremendous value.
