Chianti Classico (Italy's Flagship Red Wine)



Chianti Classico (Italy's Flagship Red Wine)
 

 
Varietal requirements: 80-100% Sangiovese with up to 20% of any amount or variation of these grapes: Canaiolo, Colorino. Merlot, and/or Cabernet Sauvignon.
 
 
 
At this stage of the NHWM blog, occasionally I have to refine my Index of reviewed wines; this is one of those times, and as I frequently say: This is a work in progress.
Hopefully this narrowing of Italian Sangiovese wines will be helpful for those that have frequent inquiries; Chianti and the Riserva will also be refined by separate categories in the near future.
