Fiore Chianti DOCG Fiore Nero 2012 Product #28382 (In Stock)
Fiore Chianti DOCG Fiore Nero 2012 Fiore Chianti DOCG Fiore Nero 2012

This is the second wine we've featured from Italy's Alessandro Fiore and, like the way over-achieving Super-Tuscan Rosso, it's a lot of wine for the money.  We could give you all kind of descriptive prose about the 2012 Fiore Nero Chianti DOCG - but it all boils down to: "This smells and tastes like Chianti!"  Specifically, a really nice, old-school, Chianti with great fruit and a soft, supple, finish.  Classic Chianti aromas of earthy black cherry and raspberry lead to plenty of dark berry fruit with some nice floral and licorice accents. The black fruit keeps on pumping across the fine tannins at the end as a hint of fresh leather emerges and juicy acids make your mouth water.

In short, it's a very fine Spaghetti House Chianti full of clean, modern, fruit and plenty of old-school fun. Grab a case, bake up a big dish of lasagna, and have a party!

One of the most consistently popular Chianti reds comes from the hills around Florence.  As always, it's a round, black-fruited, wine loaded with soft black cherry and plum flavors and just the right touch of earthy spice.  Juicy and a touch tangy on the finish, it's a solid choice for burgers, pasta, pizza or just to sip on its own. Nicely priced, too!

Tenuta Le Calcinaie Chianti Colli Senesi 2012 Tenuta Le Calcinaie Chianti Colli Senesi 2012

Organic Grapes.  Here's a gutsy, ripe, blend of Sangiovese with just a tiny bit of Canaiolo Nero) that delivers romas and flavors of black cherry fruit with accents of violets, licorice, and a hint of spice. There's just the right amount of Chianti heft and tannic power on the finish, but a nice burst of tangy cherry acidity keeps the dark fruit and floral flavors fresh and focused across the long finish.  A great steak Chianti and ready to drink now.

Carpineta Fontalpino Chianti Classico 2012 Product #29226 (In Stock)
Carpineta Fontalpino Chianti Classico 2012 Carpineta Fontalpino Chianti Classico 2012

Gioia Cresti fashioned her 2012 Chianti Classico from 100% Sangiovese grapes grown  at 350 meters elevation in Castelnuovo Berardenga.  Fermentation in tank followed by 12 months aging in neutral barrel lets the fruit shine through while mellowing Sangiovese’s often hard tannins.  You’ll find bold and classic Chianti aromas of dark black cherry, leather, dried tobacco, crushed violet and more jump out of the glass at first pour and get deeper and more ripe with air.  Plenty of the dark, rich, fruit you expect from this warm 2012 vintage, but also some of the clarity and juicy acids that make Fontalpino so easy to drink and pair with food.  The tannins are fine and ripe and the juicy cherry/berry and violet notes linger nicely.  Very classic Chianti indeed.

"Serious density and freshness for the vintage with dark-berry and fresh-mushroom character. Full body with fine tannins and a crisp finish. Drink now." James Suckling 90 points

"Bright, saturated red. Aromas of red cherry, dark berries, tobacco and violet, lifted by a whiff of minty minerals. Bright, juicy and sappy, showing very good density to the vibrant flavors of redcurrant, tobacco and gunflint. This solidly structured, mineral-bright Chianti Classico finishes with a firm tannic spine and just screams sangiovese. I was pleasantly surprised by this estate's performance this year, and I'll be following the wines more closely in the years to come."  Vinous 90 points

"Rich and elegant, with cherry, strawberry, tobacco and tea flavors. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins defining the finish. Best from 2016 through 2022. 4,200 cases made." Wine Spectator 90 points

Isole E Olena Chianti Classico 2012 Isole E Olena Chianti Classico 2012

A pretty, floral, vintage for this long-time favorite.  If it's lighter than in some years, it's also very fresh and elegant with a long, mouthwatering, finish.

"Smoky, musky aromas of red berries, flint, tea leaf and game. Sweet, fresh and round, with a hint of dried herbs adding interest to the red cherry and flinty plum flavors. Good vinosity here, and a persistent finish featuring fine-grained tannins and explosive repeating flavors of musky red berries."International Wine Cellar 90 points

Here's an exotic, very complex, Vin Santo that combines savory notes of tobacco and mint with fresh orange and lemon peel and sweet, rich, herb honey and caramel.  It's rich and weighty on the palate on through the stupendous finish where a touch of acidity lifts up the caramel, mint, and honey notes that linger on and on.  Brilliant stuff.
