Sangiovese, the signature grape of Tuscany, makes earthy, cherry-inflected reds, like this one from Castello della Paneretta.
What You Need To Know
While many Chianti estates today blend international grapes like Cabernet and Merlot into their Sangiovese-based wines, Castello della Paneretta is a proud traditionalist. This medieval estate, which has been growing wine grapes since the 16th century, includes only Sangiovese and Canaiolo in its reds. The result is firmly structured Chianti wines that have enough natural acidity to pair beautifully with a range of foods, especially classic, tomato-based sauces and stews. Castello della Paneretta is located in Chianti Classico, a small, prestigious subzone whose wines are a step up from basic Chianti.
