Vivino's Regional Styles

Italian Chianti Classico

With a medium body, high acidity and firm tannins, Chianti Classico is an amazingly popular wine both in Italy and around the world.

Usually entirely fermented from Sangiovese grapes, tart cherry, red plum, strawberries and fig please the nose and palate when enjoying this wine.

Chianti Classico may only come from the Classico region of Tuscany. Think of it as the “premiere” version compared to the Chiantis of several other surrounding Chianti producing regions.

Chianti Classico has very strict blending requirements. It is a red wine that comes from Tuscany and can contain no amount of white grapes during blending. Look for the black rooster on the label as the symbol for Chianti Classico.

Unlike normal Chianti, Classico versions are often aged in oak for as long as three years, and can shelf for as many as ten.

This wine is versatile and its high acidity allows it to be enjoyed with a wide range of foods. Enjoy Chianti Classico best with wild game, lamb, veal cutlets, or flavorful pastas.
