Villa Cafaggio 2010 Chianti Classico, Basilica Estate
Here's a single estate Chianti Classico from Cafaggio. Villa Cafaggio is a 160 acre estate located in an area of the Chianti Classico region known as the "Conca d'Oro" or Golden Basin because it has such an ideal microclimate. Vineyards lie at about 1,200 feet above sea level. For this wine only grapes from the Basilica Estate are used. 100% Sangiovese aged 12 months in Slavonian oak casks. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 91 points saying "This stunning wine boasts a bright, vibrant character. The palate has a juicy core of black cherry spiced with nutmeg and cinnamon that recalls Christmas cake. Itís fresh and delicious, with silky tannins that make it easy to enjoy soon."

    Comments about Villa Cafaggio 2010 Chianti Classico, Basilica Estate:

    These guys are making some great Chiantis across the board! This CC could easily be mistaken for a Riserva with its structure and complexity. The red fruits are vibrant yet rich, and the texture is silky smooth. Serious value here!

    • Pairs Well With:
    • Beef, Pizza and Pasta

    Middle of the road Chianti

          Comments about Villa Cafaggio 2010 Chianti Classico, Basilica Estate:

          This particular Chianti is very drinkable but it is a lightweight compared to other Chianti's we have purchased. We prefer more full-bodied, complex reds but, that said, someone who is looking for an easy drinking wine will probably find this enjoyable.
