Wines to be featured:
Chianti Classico by Castello di Meleto
Sangiovese, Cabernet, and Merlot
Tasting notes: this wine was made in the top subzone of Chianti by one of the top winemakers in Italy today, Roberto Stucchi, who owns one of the most famous estates in Chianti, Badia a Coltibuono. This is a rich Chianti Classico, with aroms of red fruit and chocolate and tobacco undertones. Chianti Classico is known as “classico” or classic because its where the production of fine wine originated in Tuscany.
Rosso di Montalcino by Camigliano
Tasting notes: this is a traditional-style Sangiovese, with classic plum flavors and aromas, and balanced, smooth tannin. A classic pairing for steak, this wine is made by one of the most famous producers of Brunello di Montalcino — one of Tuscany’s most prized wines. Younger vines make this wine more approachable at an earlier age.
Non Confunditur “NC” by Argiano
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Sangiovese
Tasting notes: a rich Super Tuscan from one of the greatest producers of Brunello di Montalcino. A great wine for the Napa Valley Cab lover, a great steak wine, and a great value for the quality. This 16th century winery has some of the best growing sites in the Brunello di Montalcino appellation thanks to the elevation of the vineyards. Freshness on the nose, clean flavors of red fruit with notes of tobacco, chocolate, and cigar box.
