"These are no longer among the most profound wines in Tuscany or Italy, for that matter. San Giusto is world-class. It's as simple as that." - Antonio Galloni
Few regional wines offer as much of a sense of place and a great Chianti Classico is practically a Tuscan vacation right at your dinner table! The best part is that even today with quality at an all-time high for the region, prices are remarkably low, which keeps this food-friendly classic a go-to for any night of the week.
At San Giusto a Rentennano, the “artisan spirit” is thriving and Galloni declared this “world-class” estate “one of the pearls of Italy.” “Rounder and richer than many of its peers” (Wine Advocate), the 2014 Chianti Classico outperforms in the vintage thanks to the true “vigneron culture” that puts vineyard management first. That’s how San Giusto has earned a reputation for “some of the most expressive and interpretive wines in Tuscany” (Wine Advocate), and today’s 2014 Chianti is available for the best price of any vintage currently on the market!
Savvy Chianti lovers are cluing into the variation in Chianti terroir, and that ‘Gaiole in Chianti’ often stands apart from the rest of the Classico appellation. Gaiole is one of the cooler micro-climates in the region, which combined with the San Giusto estate’s 1,000 feet elevation and southern-exposure, leads to both aromatic elegance and full ripeness.
The 2014 San Giusto Chianti Classico comes from the same estate as the ultra-in-demand Percarlo and is only $19.94! Grab a case or two and make this your go-to Sangiovese for any night of the week. Cheers!
