Made from Sangiovese and Canaiolo Toscano grapes with a medium period of maceration, the Chianti is a little (not so little) belter. With the wines from the Classico region topping ten quid it‘s great to find a rustic uncompromising Sangiovese. Lovely meaty style of wine with flavours of spicy ripe cherries, roasted herbs, leather and liquorice. Try this with ribollita, a bread-thickened bean and black cabbage soup or pot roast pigeon cooked with sage and spiced luganega sausage with stir-fried fennel or braised celery.
