It's time to roll out your favorite Italian comfort foods, winelovers! From the quintessential Tuscan fortified village of Volpaia, this Castello di Volpaia Chianti Classico Riserva is elegant, fragrant and superbly structured, and thus the perfect pairing partner... Chicken, pasta, pizza, lamb and more will all do well; you just have to decide what's on the menu. Pour your first glass of ripe, rich fruit and earthy notes and enjoy it with a cannelini bean-garlic puree on toasted baguette slices. This subtle, layered Chianti Classico Riserva is great with tomato and meat sauces, so cheese ravioli with a fresh tomato sauce or the classic meat lasagna are wonderful options, as is a sausage pizza. We love the tannins of this Volpaia with grilled rib lamb chops paired with a delicious porcini risotto. After you've finished with the main course, pour another glass and nurse it with an Italian Provolone Dolce cheese. Like it's sharper cousin, it is a slightly milder version which will complement this Tuscan red beautifully. Prendi i bicchieri, enofili!

Wine Spectator, 94 Points: "A bight yet firmly structured Chianti Classico, with iron, leather, almond and floral accents surrounding a core of cherry fruit. Sleek and intense, with a lingering finish echoing cherry, red berry, and mineral notes." 

Winery: "The Chianti Classico Riserva has a ruby-red hue with a trace of garnet. The nose is elegant, displaying hints of spice and fruit. This a well-structured wine with smooth tannins and a long finish."
