wein.plus rating: very good (87 WP) What our ratings mean
Last reviewed: 23 January, 2021
Editor note: Clear, rather tart aroma of black and a little red berries with fine, delicately dried floral spice. Firm, clear and tart-juicy in the mouth, nutty and slightly spicy tones, dried floral aromas again, fine, ripe tannin, a hint of smoke, cedary nuances, good persistence, salty-mineral nuances, good to very good finish. A lot of wine for the money

DOCG area for red wine in the Italian region of Tuscany. If you ask ten people for the most famous wine in Italy, you will probably get the answer "Chianti" from at least eight. The wine is named after the hilly landscape between Florence and Siena. The name is probably derived from the name of an Etruscan family. The first mention of a Chianti wine dates back to 1404, when a merchant from Prato named Francesco Datini bought a white wine in Vignamaggio. Originally, Chianti was only valid for the areas around Radda, Gaiole and Castellina in the province of Siena, in the south of the present Chianti Classico area. The feudal lords...

The region with the capital Florence is located in the centre of Italy on the Ligurian coast; the third largest Italian island Elba is also included. It borders Liguria and Emilia-Romagna to the north, Marche and Umbria to the east and Lazio to the south. Besides Piedmont, Tuscany is probably the most famous Italian wine-growing region and also one of the most beautiful areas of the country in terms of landscape. Long before the Romans, the Etruscans cultivated wine here, making it one of the oldest wine-growing regions in Europe. In ancient times, the area formed the land of...

Italy is one of the oldest wine-growing countries, the beginnings go back at least to before 1,000 BC. It was at this time that the Etruscans appeared in central Italy, settling areas in the four regions of today's Abruzzo, Lazio, Tuscany and Umbria. The origins of Italian wine culture lie above all in the Greek colonisation, which brought Greek wine culture to the peninsula, beginning in the 10th century BC on the island of Sicily as well as Campania and Calabria. The Greeks brought many of their grape varieties with them and named the ideal land for...

The red grape variety originates from Italy. There are more than 80 synonyms that testify to its probably great age and wide distribution, especially in Italy. The most important ones are Brunelletto, Brunello, Cacchiano, Calabrese, Cardisco, Cassano, Cordisio, Chiantino, Corinto Negro, Guarnacciola, Ingannacane, Lambrusco Mendoza, Lacrima, Liliano, Maglioppa, Montepulciano Primaticcio, Morellino, Morellino di Scansano, Negrello, Negretta, Nelutcho, Nerello, Nerello Campotu, Nerino, Nerino Sanvicetro, Niella, Nielluccio, Primaticcio, Prugnolo Dolce, Prugnolo Gentile, Puttanella, Sangiogheto, Sangiovese dal Cannello Lungo, Sangiovese dal Cannello Lungo...

The red grape variety originates from Italy. Synonyms are Caccione Nero, Cagnina, Canaiolo, Canaiolo Toscano, Canajolo Nero, Canaiolo Romano, Canajuola, Cannaiola di Marta, Cannaiola Macchie di Marta, Uva Canina and Uva dei Cani. Despite seemingly suggestive synonyms, it should not be confused with the Colorino del Valdarno variety. The pink-berry Canaiolo Rosa is a color mutation; however, there is no relationship to the white-berry Canaiolo Bianco (Drupeggio). According to a hypothesis, an ancestor was already known to the Etruscans and was therefore called Vitis vinifera etruscaVitis...
