Antonio Sanguineti, Chianti D.O.C.G.
(kee-AHN-tee)

 

Tasting Notes: From our favorite “Maestro,” Antonio Sanguineti, comes this wonderfully delicious Chianti, made in a friendly, approachable style that is rich and powerful, yet great with food. Antonio lived as a boy in Chianti, near Siena, and despite his famous prowess with Brunello and SuperTuscan wines, has always considered Chianti the wine closest to his heart. Here, he partners with his close friend, Luca Pattaro of Il Ciliegio in Sicilia, to make a great everyday wine that is perfect with all Italian foods.
