While the wines at Paglierese are, of course, Sangiovese-based, they are also blended with small amounts of Canaiolo and Mammolo - two indigenous grapes to Tuscany that are perfect partners to blend with Sangiovese. Canaiolo can soften Sangiovese a bit and Mammolo adds floral and spicy notes when blended but neither dominates Sangiovese as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot often can. Pagliarese wines tend to be a bit more elegant and soft. The graceful style is accentuated by a classical wine-making regimen that promotes elegance over extraction including a gentle maceration regime as well as extended aging in mostly in neutral 50HL Slavonian oak botti. The resulting wines are beautifully refined, pure examples of Chianti Classico.

The Pagliarese 2019 Chianti Classico is a bright and simple expression with pretty notes of earth, blue flower and Mediterranean herb or lavender essence. The wine reveals a slim, lean-bodied approach with well-dosed acidity on the close. This vintage shows some extra concentration with candied cherry and blackcurrant on the finish.

The 2019 Chianti Classico is fresh, vibrant and wonderfully nuanced. Sweet dried cherry, mint, pipe tobacco, cedar and dried herbs lend aromatic intensity to this decidedly savory Chianti Classico. This is an especially distinctive, old-school style.

A blend of 90% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo and 5% Mammolo, this fragrant red offers heady scents of dark spice, forest berries and eucalyptus. On the straightforward palate, lithe, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity accompany black cherry, orange zest and star anise. Drink through 2024.
