Chianti remains one of the most lauded and long-lived wine regions in Italy specialising in the variety Sangiovese. This wine is sourced from a small grower in Chianti Rufina one of the highest and coolest parts of the region resulting in wines that are quite granite rich with a mineral edge and fine acidity.  
Whilst the majority of the region’s vineyard owners still sell their fruit to large wineries and co-operatives, an increasing number are opting to make small amounts of wine themselves, selling directly under their own label such as Maretti.

Pair this with a simple pizza Margareta, close your eyes, turn on some opera and may find yourself magically transported to a wonderful little trattoria in the back streets of Sienna. Or you may not. Either way this is a really lovely little slice of Italy; sangiovese with just a touch of cabernet, that may help add a little romance to your Friday night. Savoury and interesting, this is a lovely drop for a very reasonable price. Wine of the Week; Winsor Dobbin

Cherries, dark, sweet and sour, almond paste, perfume of dried herbs. It’s medium-bodied, but fleshy and ripe, powdery tannin, some new leather savoury stuff and a subtle bitter tweak, solid finish. Drinks well. Value and flavour delivered, with appropriate regional character. Yep. Good stuff. Tasted: Feb 20; Alcohol: 13.5%; Price: $24; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2020-2022+; Rated: 91 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front

Sweetly fruited and fragrant, the bouquet shows dark cherry, toasted almond, anise and thyme notes, followed by a beautifully weighted palate that offers lovely fruit intensity together with spicy nuances and polished tannins. Delightfully drinkable. Alcohol: 14.5%; Price: $24; Drink: 2020-2022; Rated: 93 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
