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.

Italy has a rich vinicultural heritage dating back more than two thousand years. Over the centuries the Greeks, Etruscans and Romans all played a significant role in the development of different wine styles, the way grapevines were grown, the evolution of winemaking traditions and the considerable changes in storage methods as wine moved from amphorae to bottle.
Italian wines are made with the aim of partnering Italy's rich and varied cuisine; subtle flavors work in harmony with the food without making too bold a statement. As they say in Italy, wine should be non impegnativo, meaning it should not demand too much attention.
