    Villa Calcinaia "Cappone" Chianti Classico '17

    Villa Calcinaia "Cappone" Chianti Classico '17

    As most of you know, we take Italian wine pretty seriously here at Perman. That’s not to say that wines from Italy are more important than those from elsewhere—we just happen to love the quality, diversity, and value that Italy has to offer (as well as the food!). A few weeks ago, we had the opportunity to sit down with Sebastiano Capponi of Villa Calcinaia, based in Greve in Chianti, to learn about his family’s history and taste through their outstanding lineup of wines. Villa Calcinaia has been around since 1524 and produces an impressive range: Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, Chianti Classico Riserva, rosato, a classic-method sparkler of Sangiovese, several different single-varietal wines, and, of course, a Chianti Classico—all of which are made with certified organic grapes. In this month’s wine club, we’re introducing you to the 2017 Chianti Classico.

    Cappone, the name of this excellent bottle of 100% Sangiovese, comes from the estate's young vines and is made to be enjoyed early and often. Aromas of sunny Tuscany, tomato leaf, cherry, and cranberry fill the glass. On the palate, fresh red fruits and juicy acidity hit you first, backed by moderate tannins and alcohol. After a first sip of the wine, you’ll likely become quite hungry, perhaps for a pizza Margherita, a plate of Tuscan salumi and cheese, or a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs topped with grated Parmesan. If one of those dishes had miraculously appeared, both it and the wine would soon have been gone. While this wine is delicious on its own, it’s a match made in heaven for some classic Tuscan fare, especially anything grilled, fatty, or tomato-based.
