While Chianti may be the single best-known Italian wine in the world, its taste and quality can vary dramatically among producers. For wine lovers, Bell’Agio Chianti D.O.C.G. represents a treasure they can trust.
D.O.C.G. production regulations allow for flexibility in Chianti’s formulation. In Bell’Agio Chianti, Sangiovese grapes account for 90% of the wine, and 10% Canaiolo Nero, Trebbiano and Malvasia. This blend creates a mouth-filling, lively and fruity Chianti.
Bell’Agio Chianti D.O.C.G., available in the traditional straw-covered bottle (known as a fiasco), is a vibrant, ruby-red wine with a full bouquet reminiscent of violets. The taste is dry and smooth with zesty notes of cherry and berry fruit. It is ideal with veal, Italian dishes and cheeses.
