Chianti is a red wine produced in the Chianti region of Tuscany, Italy. It is made primarily from the Sangiovese grape variety, but can also include small amounts of other grapes such as Canaiolo and Colorino.
Chianti has a range of styles, from light and fruity to more complex and full-bodied, depending on the winemaker's style and the specific terroir of the vineyard. The wine is known for its acidity and tannins, which make it a good pairing with rich, tomato-based Italian dishes.
Chianti has a long history, dating back to the 13th century. Today, the Chianti region is divided into seven sub-zones, each with its own regulations and characteristics. Chianti Classico is one of the most well-known sub-zones, known for producing some of the highest-quality Chianti wines.
