Indicative Blend: Predominantly Sangiovese with Canaiolo
(Approx, ex-tax, all vintages)
The Chianti Blend is a style of wine based on historical winemaking in Tuscany, Italy. The blend’s primary constituent is the dark-skinned Sangiovese grape, grown extensively in Tuscany and in a handful of places in the New World. What distinguishes the Chianti Blend from other wines is the addition of one or more of the Italian varieties, Canaiolo, Colorino, Ciliegiolo and Mammolo.

Chianti Classico is the heartland of the Chianti wine region – its traditional and longest-established viticultural area. The term classico is used in this way in several Italian wine regions (Orvieto and Valpolicella, for example), although Chianti is almost certainly the most famous example. This fame is due not just to the high quality of the wines, but also to the classico zone's iconic Tuscan landscape and winemaking traditions. The typical Chianti Classico wine is a ruby-red, Sangiovese-based wine with aromas of violets and cherries and a hint of earthy spice.
