Sommelier's Notes

Chianti wine (“kee-Ahn-tee”) is a red blend from Tuscany, Italy, 


The Borgianni is a lively ruby red with purple highlights. A classic, versatile Chianti. Dry, rich and polished with hints of cherry. Soft and easy to enjoy.


Winery : Castello Di Volpaia Tuscany, Italy


The Castello di Volpaia was built in the 11th century as a fortified village on the Florence/Siena border. Although only part of the original protective walls and two of its six towers are still standing, the medieval layout and buildings within the village are still intact, making Volpaia undoubtedly one of the best preserved villages of its period.


General Aging : Aged for 6 months. Young, simple, tart Chianti


Culinary Recommendation: To be served at 16 C - 18 C. Good match with tomato sauced Lasagna, Pasta Bolognese, Pizza, Spaghetti.
