Monsanto Chianti Classico 750ml
Discover Chianti Wines
A Chianti wine is any wine produced in Chianti, which is located in central Italy's Tuscany area, some 60 miles inland from the Ligurian Sea on the west coast. Chianti's closest city, Florence, is less than an hour away, making the region a favorite wine-loving tourist destination. The Chianti region is famed for its sweeping scenery, scorching summers, and a rich history of art and cuisine. Chianti is named after its place of origin, rather than the grape used to make it, which in this case is Sangiovese, as is the case with most other Old World wines.
To be named Chianti, the wine must be made entirely of Sangiovese grapes and produced in the Chianti region. In most cases, winemakers use Sangiovese exclusively, but in vintages where balance is required, native grapes such as Canaiolo and Colorino are blended in. International varieties including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah appear on occasion.
