What a score at this AMAZING price. Just landed, direct from Italy --- the guys are unloading the truck, as we speak. We love this wine of course, and the Nunzi family’s beautiful Tuscan dream-farm, replete with every magical postcard image of Italian wine country you ever saw (watch out for the goats, pigs, chickens, and more). The CELLAR --- seriously, it dates back to the 1400s! Just a fantastic little find -- truly amazing.

The wine is soul-warming, as noted above, redolent of cherries, dried cherry, sweet rhubarb, red plums and dried flowers, pomegranate and a touch of blood orange, rich and beautifully fresh and harmonious. UTTERLY delicious in every way – not to mention THE PRICE!

** Did you know? The “Black Rooster", so prominent on Chianti Classico labels, has a great story. It begins during the middle ages, after years of a bloody war between the republic of Florence and Siena over control over the Chianti region. One knight was chosen to fight from each side. Each side had to choose a rooster to wake them. The Sienese chose to be awoken by a white rooster, and the Florentines chose a black rooster. The Florentines' rooster awoke first and the knight thus got a head start. The rooster on the Sienese side awoke the knight later in the morning. Thus the winner was the Florentines, and the black rooster has stuck as the symbol of Chianti Classico. **

ONLY 36 CASES! Excellent drinking all-year round!

About the Producer

Founded by Gualtiero Nunzi in the late 1800's who moved to Florence to pursue his fortune and passions. When Gualtiero passed, he left his estate to his eldest son, Antonio, who carried on the family tradition with the same dedication of his father. Antonio strongly believed in the area's terroir for growing vines and making wines. He was one of the founders of the Consorzio del Vino Chianti Classico Gallo Nero. Gualtiero Armando took over the helm of the winery from his brother after WW2 and became one of the key figures in the history of both the family winery and the local wine industry. He was made Vice-President of the Consorzio Vino Chianti Classico and held the role of President between 1994 and 1997. Gualtiero Armando planted new vineyards, purchased more land, and built a profitable and efficient winery whilst respecting the beauty and nature of the extraordinary countryside of the Chianti hills. Today, the Nunzi Conti family estate is run by his son Maurizio and grandchildren Antonio and Isabella. They are assisted by wine-maker Giampaolo Chiettini.
