An icon and one of the most widely consumed wines in Italy, Chianti has become globally synonymous with the country as pizza and pasta. Within Chianti, its Classico district is considered to be the finest winegrowing subregion, and very specific rules govern which grapes actually make the cut.
Lot 801 is a DOCG offering from a historic Tuscan estate whose founding dates back to the 1700s. Home to superb vineyards planted in ancient calcareous limestone soils, its Sangiovese grapes undergo traditional winemaking methods before spending 12 months in oak casks. Boasting a smooth palate, silky tannins, and an undeniable rustic character, it’s a wine that any nonna would be proud to serve alongside secret family recipes passed down through generations.
Perfect table wine
Exactly what a Chianti should be. Delicious, well-balanced, with earthy undertones. Paired perfectly with a summer pizza.
Excellent Chianti Classico!
Medium bodied wine with a pleasant lingering finish. Tasty once it airs out a bit. I prefer it with food. For me, not a sipper. An excellent value!
Great Price, Excellent Wine
My hubby and I are big Italian Wine Fans, we did a side by side comparison with this Chianti Classico and Lot #803 Super Tuscan. We served them with homemade pizza (meat-lovers). You couldn't ask for a better price point for this Italian classic. Cam did a great description and I agree with all his tasting notes. This is a easy drinker, we used the Coravin and the aerator attachment for both and the nose leapt out of the glass. This is a no-brainer add to the order.
Light and flavorful, a crowd pleaser at a great price.
Very Nice Chianti
This beautiful Sangiovese is a dry complex wine with a good balance of acids and tannins. Let it breath for a bit and you’ll have a nice complement to hearty Italian dishes
You won't regret filling your cart with this one. Easily drinks at far multiple times the price. Very balanced and nuanced.
Easy 5 Star
Best value offer from CH in my view… I’ve been waiting for the every day Italian reds to drop for a while. I’m going to load up on this one. So versatile, but distinct with cherry and dried herb notes. Don’t hesitate!
Nicely done Chianti
Expressive of dried cherry, flowery in bouquet, slight tobacco, and much more. Ruby in color, medium body, good lasting finish. It is nice to know some countries still use natural cork to finish off a great vintage. Again, nicely done!
Somewhat Disappointing-----Very Unusual for Cameron Hughes Wines
We are really into Italian wines and, unfortunately, this wine misses the mark.
Solid every day drinker
Aroma is floral, some dusty raspberry notes. Flavor is graphite, raspberry.....some florals and dusty character as well. Med light body, bright, balanced. Pizza is almost ready so will see how it pairs. Solid every day drinker.
