This earthy, cherry-driven red comes from Chianti Classico, a small, prestigious zone within Tuscany's Chianti region.

What You Need To Know

Good Sangiovese can be a tough wine to love when it's young: High in tannins and acidity, it takes years for its flavors to soften. That's why winemakers in Chianti, Sangiovese's home turf, hold on to their wines for years before releasing them. Fattoria Rodáno, an estate winery located about 10 miles northwest of Siena, ages its wines even longer than most of its neighbors. This bottling spent 12 months aging in botte (giant, traditional casks made of Slovenian oak) and small French barrels, then years maturing in bottle before Rodáno's owners, the Pozzesi family, and winemaker Guilio Gambelli deemed it ready for sale.
