Wine & Gourmet Tours in Tuscany and Italy

Chianti Classico

The wines

The minimum percentage of Sangiovese, the typical red variety of the area, that must be used is 80 to 100%. Obviously, this grape can be used alone (100%). In addition to Sangiovese, producers may use other native red grapes, like Canaiolo and Colorino, or "international" types, such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with a maximum ratio of 20%.
