Sometimes called the "Bordeaux of Italy", Chianti is a red wine from the Chianti region in Tuscany, Italy. It is made from a blend of grapes that consists of 75%-100% Sangiovese, up to 20% of approved red grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot, and up to 10% of Canaiolo. A basic Chianti should have at least 11.5% alcohol content, while the Chianti Classico variety should have a minimum of 12.5%.

Chianti has a bold, strong flavor that goes well with heavily seasoned foods and red sauces.

It is typically good for up to 10 years, and should be served at 59F (15C).
