Tuscany, Italy

Montecalvi Chianti Classico is a beautiful wine from this famous appellation of Tuscany. Renowned winemaker Tim Manning is leading this up-and-coming estate in Greve. Montecalvi's wine history goes back to the 1400's and their specialty is Sangiovese. Vineyards on sandstone/clay soil at an altitude at 250m above sea level and with ideal south/south-east/south-west exposures. They farm their vineyards (and all of the estate) organically and sustainably. Only 4 hectares are devoted to grapes with the oldest for the Chianti Classico over 30 years. The wine is basically a Sangiovese but with a touch of Canaiolo and Canina Nera in a field blend.

Montecalvi Chianti Classico is deep ruby red in color with a beautiful nose of red berries, plums, violets, and spice. Medium in body with moderate acidity and firm tannins, this red offers flavors of cherry, blackberry and mocha, with well-integrated sweet oak. Aged for 18 months in French tonneaux, then 30 days in stainless and at least 6 months in the bottles, it is nicely balanced to enjoy now or to cellar for 6-8 years. The finish is long and polished.

Enjoy Montecalvi Chianti Classico with veal, pasta, osso buco, and aged cheeses.
