    "Elegantly structured,... the vibrant palate is loaded with finesse, offering crunchy red cherry, strawberry, star anise..." ~ Wine Enthusiast

    A food-friendly Riserva Chianti Classico with succulent fruit, earth notes, velvety tannins and perky acidity? Sign us up, we say, especially at this price! The Casa al Vento Foho Riserva Chianti Classico is all that and a bag of chips. Fill everyones glasses and offer up individual ramekins of asparagus risotto to whet their whistles. A delicious entree to follow that risotto is Tuscan style sausage and beans. It goes perfectly with the earthiness of the wine. Veal roast with mushrooms and cippolini onions works beautifully too. But if you're craving pasta, make it fresh fettucine with a wild boar ragu. Any questions??

    Wine Enthusiast:  "Elegantly structured, this opens with enticing scents of red berry, blue flower and a whiff of tilled soil. The vibrant palate is loaded with finesse, offering crunchy red cherry, strawberry, star anise and a hint of mineral alongside silky tannins and bright acidity. Drink through 2023." Mar 2017

    Winery:  "Ruby red colour with garnet highlights. The aroma is very intense and complex; you can smell immediately spiced wood notes (nutmeg and cacao) and then the typical Chianti fragrance of violet. The wine is smooth, elegant, warm with a long aftertaste."
