Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Fontella Chianti

Fontella Chianti 2018

Tuscany, ItalyFontella Chianti is a classic blend of sangiovese and canaiolo made from grapes grown across the Chianti DOCG region. After a fairly standard stainless steel ferment, it aged three months in large Slavonian oak barrels. The result is a delicious drinking red wine with juicy, red cherry fruit aromas and flavours, round slippery tannins balanced by bits of forest floor, mushrooms and licorice. Simple well made and perfect for a meat pizza, grilled sausages, or a beef-stir fry. Our favourite match is a selection of Chinese take out.
