13 Celsius Presents A Wine Experiment In Terroir Part 2: Chianti says
After the success of our first tasting series last month, we’ve decided to continue our experiment in terroir by focusing on another famous red wine producing region. This time we will place our focus on our favorite country, Italy! Arguably, Chianti is the most familiar word when it comes to referring to Italian red wine, so much so that people refer to Chianti as the actual grape. However, Chianti is the region located in the heart of Tuscany, between Florence and Siena, that produces Italy’s grape claim to fame, sangiovese.

The popularity of Chianti started in the Middle Ages as the city of Florence was of great importance and the hills to the south became the epicenter of wine making. The wines flourished for years until the mid-20th century when production was geared toward quantity instead of quality. Most Italian wine drinkers will be reminded of the straw-basket-covered bottle, called a fiasco, which doubles as a candle holder or table centerpiece.

Today, winemaking in Chianti is geared toward producing wines of quality. The region can be broken down into several sub regions within Chianti. Do you know the difference between Chianti and Chianti Classico?

We invite you to engage with the staff as we pour you a flight of seven different wines from Chianti to taste at your leisure in an attempt to draw your own conclusions of what terroir means. Also, after the flight, meander on down the street to Weights and Measures where Chef Richard will feature a special “Chianti inspired” pizza and wine special. Of course we will be offering these wines for retail at a special one-day-only price.
