Passport to Chianti Classico Case #1

The WineAlign Exchange is thrilled to partner with the Consorzio Vino Chianti Classico for this inaugural international Passport case offer, an exclusive partnership with Tuscany’s famous wine region, six of its most iconic producers and their sangiovese of exceptional quality.  WineAlign writers have been fortunate to take in the region’s renowned history, food, olive oil and vineyards, but most importantly relationships have been forged with so many producers and custodians of what is affectionately called the Gallo Nero. The Passport cases are a culmination of years of learning, tasting and hard work. They are the first of their kind for WineAlign and these six wines (6×2 bottle case) chosen are foremost a decision made collectively after the critics each sat down over the last several weeks to taste dozens of examples. The wines are also an extension of what new facets and nuances about Chianti Classico’s sangiovese the writers have learned as recent as February 2020 in Florence, Italy.

This Passport to Chianti Classico mixed case celebrates the first two levels of the region’s appellations and the more than 350 producers in the territory. Case number one is representative of six leading Chianti Classico wineries and explores the youthful freshness of sangiovese, but also the subtle differences found in the eight communes and their soils. Every wine selected has been reviewed and endorsed unanimously by the hard-to-please WineAlign critics, carefully orchestrated for delivery directly to your door.

Since 1716 Chianti Classico has preserved the unique qualities of its native land and soils and it is the Black Rooster that protects the wines from all imitations.

The first case includes Chianti Classico DOCG and Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG to express a cross-section of the area’s most drinkable sangiovese. The cost of this 6×2 bottle case is $357 plus delivery. Delivery fees are estimated at $17 in Ontario (shipping locations, fees & COVID-19 update).
