Chianti is likely the most famous wine of Italy. It is made from mostly Sangiovese and comes from the region of Tuscany (Toscana). This wine is typically aged in large, old barrels which soften the wine without adding any oak flavors to it. Look for earthy flavors of leather and dried leaves, along with tangy red fruits like cherry, raspberry, and plum. Hints of star anise and herbs round out the wine with its long, fresh finish.
